Fuji World Heritage Site Guides who have a deep appreciation and understanding of Mt. Fuji’s tremendous universal value as a World Heritage Site, as well as an understanding of how to properly conserve and maintain it, and who would be able to take visitors on guided tours of the area. To date, there are 247 registered guides providing tours of all the component parts within the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Site.
