The Fujisan World Heritage Center (xmEYZ^[, Fuji Sekiisan Center, formerly known as Fuji Visitor Center) is an information center for travelers to Mount Fuji and the Fuji Five Lakes. It consists of two halls, the North Hall and the South Hall.

The South Hall requires an admission fee and visually introduces visitors to Mount Fuji with movies and a 15 meter wide model of Mount Fuji made of washi paper. Meanwhile, the North Hall is free to enter and features an information desk with details about climbing and weather conditions, as well as about tourist attractions around the mountain and Yamanashi Prefecture in general.
