Mt. Fuji and Kamakura considered as cultural heritage candidates

The Japanese government is considering recommending UNESCO approve Mt. Fuji and Kanagawa Prefecture’s Kamakura as World Heritage cultural sites, officials said Tuesday.

A special team of the Council for Cultural Affairs will soon start its screening to decide whether to recommend the two sites as cultural heritages to the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, they said.

If the team endorses the recommendation, the government will submit a preliminary written recommendation to UNESCO by the end of September and a final recommendation by the end of next January.
