After Mt. Ontake eruption on 27 Sept. 2014, it is required to prepare an evacuation plan for climber and tourists from a sudden eruption of Mt. Fuji which is the largest active volcano in Japan. There are about three million people climbing up Mt. Fuji during summer season. When the eruption starts they have to evacuate as soon as possible, and so we need to show the safety evacuation routes for them. Yamanashi prefecture produced and published the evacuation route map for climbers and tourists of Fujiyoshida-route of Mt. Fuji. We discuss problems and the usage of this map.
