Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain and a prominent symbol of Japan, was officially registered as World Cultural Heritage Site  at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Cambodia on this 22nd.

A lot of Japanese are quite happy and excited with this big news.  A special committee consisting of  special staff of  Yamanashi prefectural government and that of  Shizuoka prefecture has resolved to start collecting a 1,000 yen admission fee per person for Mt. Fuji on trial basis  from  climbers  9:00am to 6:00pm Jul.25-Aug.3 which is a high summer  period, called “Mt.Fuji Conservation Cooperation Money”. That fee, however, is not compulsory and   those who make that contribution will be given a commemorative tin badge.
