Establishment Aims


    Mt. Fuji, with all its dignity and grandeur, has been admired since ancient times and is regarded as the spiritual home of Japan. It also provides us with many blessings, including magnificent landscapes and an abundance of groundwater. We must make every effort to ensure these blessings are available not just to us but also to future generations.
    In November of 1998, in the interest of creating a society friendly to both nature and humans, Shizuoka and Yamanashi Prefectures set up the "Mt. Fuji Charter" as the starting point of a nationwide movement. The charter was created to protect and nourish Mt. Fuji's bountiful natural environment and beautiful scenery and to preserve its blessings for future generations.
    The Fujisan Network was established to increase awareness of the charter and help it take root. It promotes comprehensive environmental protection for Mt. Fuji by uniting large numbers of people who love the mountain at the prefectural, corporate, and national level.
    The Fujisan Network, through various independent activities that make use of members' fields of expertise, connects the knowledge and aims of the Mt. Fuji Charter to concrete action. And through mutual communication and partnership between all members, it works to expand the range of its activities. Its goal is to assure that future generations can enjoy Mt. Fuji _ as a national treasure and a worldwide symbol of Japan.
