In Fujikawaguchiko, a picturesque town in Yamanashi Prefecture with a stunning view of Mount Fuji, a particular spot near the Lawson convenience store has become a hotspot for tourists seeking the perfect photo opportunity. The scene of Mount Fuji seemingly perched atop the convenience store garnered attention on social media, attracting a significant influx of camera-wielding tourists to the area. Unfortunately, this surge in visitors has brought along with it a wave of bad manners, including issues such as illegal parking, littering, and disturbance to local residents.

The situation escalated to the point where the local community felt compelled to take action. Concerns over safety, traffic disruptions, and the impact on the daily lives of residents led to the decision to install a 2.5-meter-high, 20-meter long black screen between the sidewalk and the road in front of a dental clinic near the Lawson store. This black netting, made of meshed shade netting, aims to mitigate the negative effects of overtourism on the area and provide some relief to the overwhelmed residents. Despite the town's best efforts to promote coexistence between locals and tourists, the escalating issues forced them to implement this unusual measure.

The drastic move to block the view of Mount Fuji with black netting reflects the town's struggle to balance the economic benefits of tourism with the preservation of the local community's well-being. As the town grapples with the challenges posed by increasing tourist numbers and their associated behavior, it remains to be seen whether this intervention will effectively curb overtourism and restore harmony to this once peaceful corner of Fujikawaguchiko.
