South Hall is the main Hall in the Fujisan World Heritage Center. First, in second floor they have replica of Mt. Fuji and it was made from Washi (Japanese Paper). It has so many lighting lamps that give colour on the Mt. Fuji replica. Through this replica, you can see the shape of Mt. Fuji from all sides, (I just notice that you will see Mt.
