Local govts wary of Mt. Fuji ‘traffic jam’

June 26, 2013 Destination North Asia No Comments Email Email

egtmedia59Mt. Fuji, the tallest mountain in Japan, will likely see its summer “traffic jam” of climbers worsen this year thanks to its expected addition to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

A symbol of Japan, the 3,776-meter peak is widely expected to be approved for the list at the 37th session of the World Heritage Committee, which opened Sunday in Cambodia.

The climbing season will start July 1, but no effective solution for the congestion has been found.

According to the Environment Ministry, about 300,000 people each year climb the mountain during the July-August period.
