Too many tourists on Mt Fuji – level 1

14-09-2023 07:00

Japan is worried about Mount Fuji. Too many tourists are visiting. It is causing problems. The area is very dirty.

Authorities are thinking about how to solve the problems. Tourists may use a tram. This will limit how many people can go to the mountain. There are also problems with dirty bathrooms and trash on the paths.

Mount Fuji is a special mountain in Japan. Many people love it.  Mount Fuji becomes famous ten years ago. It is called a UNESCO World Heritage site. But too many people are coming. Authorities worry that it will not be so interesting for people anymore.

Difficult words: limit (to set a number or level), trash (things which people throw away), path (a way for walking).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
