Japan’s World Heritage Sites!

As of July, 2014, there are a total of 18 World Heritage Sites located within Japan.

World-Heritage

14 of these are cultural heritage sites, and four are natural. We would like to introduce to you six of these World Heritage Sites here. First up are Japan’s natural sites, and we would like to start with Shiretoko, known as Japan’s last frontier. Next, we have the Shirakami-Sanchi, a forested mountainous area of Siebold’s beech trees untouched by human hands.

Takayama

For cultural sites, Shirakawa-go is a beautifully preserved example of Japan’s Gassho-style houses. Itsukushima Shrine, with its Otorii built in the sea itself, leaves a powerful impression on visitors. Himeji-jo is said to be the greatest Japanese castle in existence.

Mt.fuji-2

The Kii Mountains have a number of temples and shrines built amidst the forests and mountains, and see large numbers of worshippers each year. Visit these and other World Heritage Sites in Japan to experience the real Japan, a Japan filled with verdant forests and cultural masterpieces.

We had a little of everything on our first 2-day climb of the season. Our international climbing assemblage commenced the climb in slight showers on the first day. Therefore the group was all too thankful to get out of the rain and appreciate a much needed R&R and a great feast at our Mt. Fuji Mountain Hut. The following day we started out early in the morning, the weather cleared up and the sun came out for our trek to the summit.
