Delay of the Summer Campaign 2015

This year we were due to open the Mt. Fuji Weather Station on July 1st and commence our program of scientific and educational projects. However, owing to a fault in a power cable near the summit, we had to delay the opening since it was impractical to remain at the station without electricity.

In June, a preliminary connection test indicated that the power supply had failed due to a faulty underground cable. This was the first time to experience a supply problem in these 9 years. After much hard work and under severe weather conditions including rain and high wind, the supply was successfully restored on July 8th. Accordingly the Summer Campaign commenced on July 8 and 24 projects are to be implemented (Details are shown elsewhere).
