I've never seen one like that. Fuji had a totally different domestic line of bikes. The better bikes in Japan were branded Fuji "Feather". As you can see from the name badge this is a Feather. I used to leaf through the Japanese catalog but that memory is long faded. It looks like a training type bike. Its hard to date because the frame gives me no idea and the parts were made over quite a period. Strange stem. In the US Fuji had a tradition of selling a mid-level training bike and a top model. They never sold well but now they do well with their track bikes now
