Cleaning up Mt. Fuji

I have written before about Ken Noguchi who is on a mission to clean up Mt Fuji. Tonight he was on Fuji TV with a group of volunteers from Fujisan Club who are using GSP equipment to locate garbage, and then go out with trucks to pick it up. For example, they are finding about 200 tons of old tires around Mt Fuji.

Watch the news show on!

As Mt Fuji is a symbol of Japan, it is good to see that more and more Japanese people are finally starting to care about it. The cleanup campaign has also been featured on TBS and Asahi TV. About bloody time, too.

Litter by the roadsides is bad enough, but when I come across a "dump" = tires, TVs, bicycles, washers, etc. - I get angry. Nice to see someone taking the initiative to do something about it.

Momo the Wonder Dog and I do a small thing that helps with the lighter stuff around this neighborhood. I posted about it here:
Momo's Brigade.

Tell Momo to tell all the other dogs (and cats too) to make such brigades all over the country and hurry up and clean up the mess that people made! WOF!!
