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.

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.

New, just opened December 23, 2017, the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center, Shizuoka is actually in Fujinomiya, a short train ride from the Shizuoka Station to the Fujinomiya Station. It is a 7 minute walk (0.5 km) from the JR station on Highway 414. The entry fee is a bargain at 300yen. Get there early so you will miss the tour buses and the school kids on excursions. The building is a work of art sitting in a very large reflecting pool with a huge red red Tori in front. Inside the building a circular ramp leads you the top, all the while displaying moving panoramic footage as if you were actually climbing Mt. Fuji yourself with accompanying sounds. The open rooftop viewing platform overlooks Fujinomiya and on a clear day Mt. Fuji will be fully revealed with more obstructions. You can sit there as long as you desire to observe the sacred mountain. On a lower level there is a theater with a well made short film about Fuji-san. Other displays depict the art and cultural significances. Don't miss this wonderful bargain.

We utilized our JR rail pass and traveled for about an hour in Shinkansen from Shinagawa to Shin-Fuji for a day trip, knowing that the weather condition would be fair to view the Mount Fuji. We selected a few parks within reasonable walking distance in Fuji City before our arrival. As we arrived the station, we headed to the tourist information center for more recommendation on great locations to for photos. The helpful lady at the center provided detail bus and train schedules to Fujinomiya from Shin-Fuji to Fuji. The journey was complex traveling on the bus, train and by foot. However, it was all worth it to make it the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center. It was a goose-bump experience that the beauty and the powerful nature combined together from a building that was designed to reflect the shape of Mother Nature. It was so powerful, beautiful and mesmerizing! I presented my student card from Western Michigan University for a free admission at the center. I highly recommend going in to walk the spiral path, learning about the meaning of Mount Fuji in Japanese culture and simulate the steep walk all the way to the top of the center. It was the WOW feeling that you can only be there to find out. This center is brand new, it opened in December 2017. Shin-Fuji is not a busy station in Shinkansen line, We had a relaxing day trip from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm to avoid rush hour in and out of Tokyo.

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.

We only came here because our coach tour couldn't access the road up to Station 5 after it was blocked by fallen trees thanks to Typhoon Trami. A pleasant hour of admiring the view and displays but no compensation for not going up the volcano.

Small footprint but overall a great interactive introduction to Fuji san. Loved the short English documentary and the displays. Nice gift shop and snack shop upstairs. Definitely a good place to start your tour or walk around or up My Fuji

Our visit was part of a cruise ship tour we did when docked in Shimizu. It's an architecturally beautiful building. The design is excellent and a walkway leads to the top of the building and you are able to travel through the various projected landscapes as they would be if climbing Mount Fuji from sea level. We were very fortunate to have a clear view of Japan's sacred mountain. There are many interesting exhibits in areas next to the stairway which can be enjoyed either on the way up or back down. There is a video theatre but unfortunately we didn't have the time to stay and enjoy a film.

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.

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
