According to a report on 16 September 2014, Japan's Mount Fuji is soiled with human waste. A large amount of human feces was left along mountain trails of the nation's highest peak after an official two-month climbing season ended at the end of August, broadcaster NHK reported, citing Shizuoka prefectural officials. Every year, about 300,000 people climb the 3,776-meter mountain in July and August.  EPA/EVERETT KENNEDY BROWN
