Mount Fuji is Japan’s highest mountain and perhaps its most iconic natural landmark. In fact, it was named a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2013. The Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center in Shizuoka was established to conduct conservation activities and share the value of Mt. Fuji with both locals and people from all over the world.
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience that both you and your little one can enjoy this summer, don’t think twice about heading here. The Center consists of three buildings, the exhibition building, the north wing, and the west wing. The exhibition building is stunning to look at and has a slope that actually allows visitors to enjoy a simulation of the experience of climbing Mt. Fuji as they ascend the slope. Images from the climbing route are projected on the walls to add to the experience! The centre of the main exhibition room features a replica of Mt. Fuji that is made of Japanese paper. It acts as a screen and shows Mt. Fuji changing with the seasons. There’s also a movie theatre, a special exhibition room featuring paintings and results of investigations and an observation hall with an unobstructed view of the real Mount Fuji. This really is the perfect place to learn more and get closer to one of nature’s most spectacular creations!
It is a great learning experience complete with a magnificent view!
Both kids and adults can enjoy this place.
The admission fee is 300 yen. However, kids 15 years of age and below, high school and university students, adults 70 years and above and people with disabilities can enter for free.
