The Fujisan World Heritage Center (xmEYZ^[, Fuji Sekiisan 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 visually introduces visitors to Mount Fuji with movies and a 15 meter wide model of Mount Fuji made of washi paper. There are also various exhibits pertaining to the mountain's role in human culture and its seismology. Visitors can explore this hall using free augmented reality handsets that enhance some of the exhibits.

The North Hall 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.
