Mount Fuji Named World Heritiage Site

"The World Heritage Committee of UNESCO decided Saturday to inscribe Mount Fuji on the U.N. agency’s prestigious World Heritage list. Japan’s highest and most celebrated peak was designated a 'cultural' rather than 'natural' site and registered under the title 'Mt. Fuji: Object of Worship, Wellspring of Art.'”--The Japan Times, June 23, 2013

Top Customer Reviews

By Stanley Levenson on December 16, 2011
Format: Hardcover
H. Byron Earhart, one of the top scholars on Mount Fuji in the world, has written a wonderfully researched book for the University of South Carolina Press. The book is laden with outstanding photos. It provides an excellent explanation of the many roles Mount Fuji has played in Japanese history, art, religion, literature, and culture. The book should be read by all those people who are fascinated with this mountain, those who are doing serious research, those who are intrigued with the many roles Mount Fuji has played, and others who are planning to view and/or climb it. Highly recommended!
