Midori Ippai Project Activities LINE 355FY2019 Mount Fuji Cleanup Activity September 14, 2019 NTT West Shizuoka Group
On September 14, 2019 (Saturday), a total of 135 participants, including employees and family members of NTT West Shizuoka Group, gathered at the Gotemba New 5th Station and took part in the cleaning of Mount Fuji while walking along the mountain trail.
The end of Mount Fuji's climbing season is deemed the best timing for the cleanup activity. At the same time, the objective is not just to pick up litter, but also to "keep Mount Fuji beautiful forever."
The activity had to be canceled in the past three years due to poor weather, but this year, it was successfully held without being affected by typhoons.
Listed as a world heritage site since 2014, Mount Fuji is a world-renowned mountain with a large number of visitors from Japan as well as other countries.
Not only so, the eastern area of Shizuoka Prefecture (Fuji Speedway, Izu Velodrome and Izu MTB Course) will also be the venue for the cycling tournament of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, and thus the number of visitors to Mount Fuji from Japan and other countries is anticipated to grow further in future.
While each individual may carry different thoughts with them while visiting Mount Fuji, we worked together to engage in the cleaning and beautification activities with the hope that they would be genuinely impressed at the sight of the "beautiful and magnificent Mount Fuji."
Thanks to this effort, Mount Fuji felt more divine than ever when we looked back at it from the mountain trail that we have cleaned.
NTT West Shizuoka Group will continue its efforts in social action programs in cooperation with members of the local community to help preserve the beautiful nature of Japan.
