Preserving FUJISAN as a World Heritage Site for the Future. The National Council on Fujisan World Heritage is an authorized nonprofit organization which aims to help the people of Japan to protect FUJISAN.

Main activities

1. PR activities
- Attending meetings of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee as an observer
We conduct PR activities to promote the cultural value of FUJISAN in Japan and overseas, so that as many persons as possible will understand and support the registration of FUJISAN as a World Heritage Site.
- Holding and providing support for various events
We provide support for a wide variety of activities aimed at protecting FUJISAN. Information about the FUJISAN World Heritage Site is provided via homepages, Facebook, and production of printed materials.
2.Educational activities
- Fujisan Kids Study Program
Children play one of the greatest roles in preserving FUJISAN for the future. We have created a set of teaching materials aimed at creating opportunities to communicate the cultural value of FUJISAN to children and help them grow into persons who will love FUJISAN as adults. In February and March 2012, we began model classes at the Fujiyoshida City Asumi Elementary School in Yamanashi Prefecture and the Fujinomiya City Kibune Elementary School in Shizuoka Prefecture. In April 2013, we distributed sets of teaching materials to all elementary schools in Shizuoka Prefecture, Yamanashi Prefecture, and Tokyo's Chuo Ward. Classes have been taught to date at approximately 900 elementary schools.
3.Fund-raising activities
- Establishment of the FUJISAN Fund
We invite organizations to become official members (supporting partners) of our NPO. We also operate the FUJISAN Fund in order to raise money for promoting ongoing activities to preserve the mountain.
- FUJISAN Thirty-six Project
In addition to the iconic ukiyo-e prints, this activity collects a wide variety of cultural contents related to FUJISAN for the enjoyment of users. A portion of the sales is donated to the FUJISAN Fund.
