Safety barrier has set up behind the Chureito pagoda

Have you visited Chureito pagoda? This place is quite famous for its BEAUTIFUL scenery.

When you take pictures of the pagoda and Mt. Fuji, you should climb up on the stone wall behind the pagoda. That surface is sloping and slippery, so Fujiyoshida city has set up a safety barrier on the wall.  But the view from there has not changed.

Please come and enjoy the scenery!!!
