Installation Details

A wide range of video equipment is used as the cornerstone of production in all of the exhibition zones.

Mt. Fuji World Heritage Centre was constructed as a base facility to "preserve" the universal values of Mt. Fuji, which was registered as a World Heritage Site, for future generations.
It consists of three halls –the exhibition hall, the north hall, and the west hall –with the highly impressive exhibition hall presenting an image of an "inverted Mt. Fuji" and lattice work. A variety of performance techniques allow visitors from inside and outside of Japan to enjoy learning about Mt. Fuji. A large number of Panasonic laser projectors and LCD displays serve as the core of this performance, relaying the attractions and ambience of Mt. Fuji in virtually every age to visitors.
In addition to our high image quality, the deciding factors for using our equipment came down to our knowhow acquired at a wide range of exhibition facilities, our long-term support system, flexible installation properties that are compatible with innovative architectural structures and our extensive product variations.
Also, Early Warning Software has been introduced to achieve stable operation.

Worshipped Mountain

Conveying the excitement of Mt. Fuji with realistic images in full view of the "Worshipped Mountain."

The first exhibition viewed by visitors is the climb up Mt. Fuji from Shizuoka Prefecture's iconic ocean. Beautiful time lapse images of the gradually changing scenery as seen from the perspective of climbers are projected onto the 193-meter-high spiral sloped wall surface that extends from the 1st floor to the 5th floor of the exhibition hall, enabling visitors to enjoy an immersive virtual climbing experience. A total of 23 PT-RW620L Panasonic laser projectors have been adopted as the main video equipment for all slopes ranging from sea level to 3,776 meters above sea level. The projectors are made up of two or more multi-screens and project natural and realistic images to convey the allure of climbing Mt. Fuji to the fullest extent. The slopes that project the landscapes near the summit of the mountain are made up of a wide multi-screen consisting of eight PT-RW620L projectors, displaying the impressive changes of the landscapes from day to night and during the awe-inspiring sunrises to visitors.

By using both white and black cabinets according to the color of the ceiling materials, they appear harmonious with the surrounding architecture. The wall surfaces and ceiling are also inclined, so there are no projectors that are suspended at the same angle or height. During the construction of the site, 3D simulations were carefully conducted.

Starting from images of Mt. Fuji as seen from the beautiful ocean of Shizuoka Prefecture, the images gradually change to the mountain summit as you climb the 193-meter-high slope. The projector displays images according to the scene.
