Mount Fuji closes its climbing routes this summer to avoid infections

Tokyo / The iconic Mount Fuji, symbol of Japan, will close its four main climbing routes this summer to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among mountaineers.

Japan’s Shizuoka Prefecture, which manages three of the four main routes to Japan’s highest peak, announced Monday that it will not open any of the roads, in addition to a similar announcement made earlier by Yamanashi Prefecture about the remaining trail.

In the past summers, large numbers of mountaineers climbed to the 3,776-meter summit in the official climbing season, between July 10 and September 10, when much of the snow is often melted and the danger of rise is less.

60 percent of these climbers made it through the Yamanashi prefecture on the “Yoshida” route, according to data collected by the local agency Kyodo, but until the announcement on Monday, the possibility of reaching a summit this summer on the roads of Shizuoka.

It is the first time since 1960 that the four routes to the top of this Japanese volcano will be closed during the climbing season, as detailed by the prefectures.

The cable cars established along the routes to shorten the path will also be closed.

Mount Fuji, traditionally considered sacred in Japan, is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and attracted some 236,000 mountaineers last season, according to data from the Japanese Ministry of the Environment.  (May 18, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
