    A place to learn more about Mt.Fuji
    A place to learn more about Mt.Fuji. Inside, you walk up the circular slope, pretending to climb Mt.Fuji. There are information along the way to read what it is like to really climb it. There is a small theatre showing videos of Mt.Fuji. At the top, you can see the real Fuji. It was cloudy when we visited there sadly. A small gift show selling Mt.Fuji items. The building itself is beautiful. Reflection on the water is just like Mt.Fuji reflecting on the lake.

    Interesting, Not Great
    Went here as part of a group tour. All very worthy and informative, but somehow not very engaging. There's a standard ten-minute film about how Mt Fuji was formed, and lots of informstion boards and displays. On the second floor there's a viewing deck where you can see Mt Fuji itself (weather permitting!). Toilets, cafe.

    Spectacular building worth seeing but not a must-see
    The exterior of this building was eye-candy for architectural junkies and complemented by an equally stunning reflection pool. The interior housed a digital experience of climbing Mt Fuji. We walked up the circular interior staircase to finish at the upper outdoor observation deck. Despite sunny weather, Mt. Fuji remained obstructed by clouds and lived up to its claim to fame as being "shy". The gift shop had sparse but good quality inventory. Fujisan Hongu Sengen, where many pilgrims climbing Mt Fuji stop to wish for a safe climb, was a few blocks away.

If you have come to Fujinomiya, then the Mount Fuji World Heritage Centre is a must: you’ll get to see and learn a lot about the volcano dominating the skyline just outside. Once you get to the to, the view is spectacular.

When modern architecture meet nature. Stun architecture reflects in front pond. Exhibition relates beleive and story about Mt. Fuji. There is observation deck, which is modern white room and the backgroud is Mt.Fuji. by the way, better check weather before visit, cause you may not see Mt. Fuji. Staffs are very friendly and communicate english quite well.

The Centre was no more than a 10 minute walk from the Fujisan Honguu Sengen Taisha Shrine. My friends told me the centre is about 2 years old and designed by the architect Shigeru Ban, the exterior timber of the lattice work is from Mt. Fuji. On closer inspection, the quality of timber work was amazing.
The surface of the large shallow pond would reflect the inverted cone of the timber work and represent Mt.Fuji. We were not able to see that as the wind was causing a lot of ripples on the water surface.
The 300 Yen Admission was a small fee. We were given an English Version of a small brochure with the fee payment. Then we start the easy climb up the inside spiral walk with gaint curve video screens on the side that is supposed to simulate the climb up the various levels of Mt. Fuji to the summit at the end of the walk. This walk was colorful, and informative of the vegetation, environment and condition as one climbs the mountain.
The balcony at the top of the building gave a great view of Mt.Fuji.
We also attended a 10 minute video in the small cinema, the video featured no dialogue and Mt.Fuji passing through the four seasons.

The architecture of this building in relation to Mt Fuji is amazing. You enter and walk up a spiral walkway which as your ascend shows you the vies and conditions you would get and see if you were climbing Mt Fuji. An amazing concept, full credit to the architect. Then at the top if it is a fine day you get an incredible view of Mt Fuji. Definitely worth a visit.

It is a good location to view Mount Fuji on a clear day. After a long bus ride it was aslo a good place to rest a bit and have some refreshments. You can also see a short documentary film

For just 300 yen it's great value. Very informative and great view. The pond outside reflects the building and the temple gate. Reminds me of Lake Tanuki.
