Japanese city begins erecting barrier to block views of Mount Fuji: AFP reporter

FUJIKAWAGUCHIKO, May 21, 2024 (BSS/AFP) – A Japanese city on Tuesday began installing a large mesh barrier at a popular Mount Fuji viewing spot in an effort to deter tourists from taking photos, an AFP reporter said.

Locals in Fujikawaguchiko are fed up with what they say is an endless stream of mostly foreign visitors milling about, breaking traffic rules in their hunt for a photo of Japan’s most famous landmark.
