Organized by the NPO "Keep Mt.Fuji Beautiful Forever Association," Mt.Fuji Cleaning Activity has been conducted with the cooperation of Shizuoka Prefecture, neighboring municipalities and private organizations every year since 1979. It was the 30th anniversary this year, and 1,400 persons from 49 organizations gathered at the starting point for a climb in Gotenba.
It was a fine day, and 40 persons from Sumidenso Platech including family members of the employees participated in the event, which was more than twice the number in the previous year. We will work to support the activity so that even more people participate in the event in the future.
In addition to cleaning activities to beautify Mt. Fuji, Sumidenso Platec is involved in planting activities. Seven employees planted the Fuji thistle at the 5th station of the Mt. Fuji Gotemba Trail.
