Japan – Mount Fuji to be World Heritage Site

What a day to visit Mount Fuji.
Today, it was decided that the 3,776 metre (12,460 feet) mountain would almost certainly become a Unesco World Heritage site.
A key United Nations advisory council, the International Council on Monuments and Sites (Icomos), recommended it for registration – much to the delight of the Japanese visitors that Mami and I saw at the site.
The near-symmetrical snow-topped volcano now awaits formal approval when Unesco’s World Heritage Committee meets in Cambodia in June.
Japan’s highest mountain, which last erupted just over 300 years ago, is certainly a spectacular sight.
