Holes in the huge screen will block the view of Mount Fuji | RTL News

The screen, which is 2.5 meters high and 20 meters wide, was installed last Tuesday to prevent disturbance to tourists. It is located opposite one of the branches of the famous Lawson supermarket chain in the city.

The waste she left behind

The peak of Mount Fuji rises above that store. Many tourists took photos from the road opposite the store. Residents complained that foreigners in particular left waste there and violated traffic rules.

There is a security guard on display between 10am and 4pm. It is suspected that the holes were pierced outside those hours. “It’s a matter of ethics. It’s a shame,” one official said of the holes large enough to put a finger through. “I tried holding the camera up to one of the holes. Did you get a good picture? I think the screen came up.”

Run less

The official states that the purpose of the screen has been achieved, because fewer people are now coming to the shooting point. According to him, there are also tourists who come specifically to see the screen itself. It is not unlikely that the screen will disappear again one day.
