Episode 150710 / 10 Jul 2015

文字稿

游览日本富士山的游客和登山者即将能在日本最高峰使用免费无线网络。日本富士山将从本周开始到今年九月期间向登山游客提供此服务。此举是为了帮助刺激日本旅游业的进一步发展。

Starting this Friday, eight free wi-fi hotspots will start operating at rest stops all the way up the mountain, including three on the summit. Japanese tourism officials say they will be handing out English instructions to hikers as they head up the trails.

They seem to be hoping that photos and videos posted from Japan's highest mountain will spread across the internet bringing lots of free publicity and lots more tourists.

The question for anyone who's been up the mountain is: 'Why does Mount Fuji need more publicity?' In the peak climbing months of July and August, the trails are already jammed with nearly 10,000 people a day. Last year, a record 285,000 people made it to the summit.
