ICOMOS  resolved to recommend Mr.Fuji, the highest mountain of Japan and a popular tourists’ destination which is thought to be one of Japan’s symbol,  and its related areas as a World Cultural Heritage Site on May 1st. (

ICOMOS has authority to recommend candidates of a World Heritage Site to UNESCO(, and  as once such a candidate is recommended, it is highly probable that candidate is to be designated as  such a Site.

Therefore, Mt. Fuji is highly supposed to be designated at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee which is to be held from June 16th and on in Cambodia. So many people, the Japanese government, municipal governments, and tourism related industries, and others are all excited and a huge expectation.

ICOMOS excluded one area of Miho-no-Matsubara  from the object of recommendation, as the area is remote and apart from Mt. Fuji itself.Still the Council for Cultural Affairs which is the advisory committee for the Commissioner of Agency for Cultural Affairs retains that area as a part of the candidate and expects the perfect designation.
