You can soon start tweeting from Mount Fuji’s summit.

Officials from Japan’s tallest peak, Mount Fuji, announced that it is offering free Wi-Fi on the mountain for all hikers in a bid to bring in more tourists to the popular destination.

There will be eight Wi-Fi hotspots in the area, encouraging hikers from all over the world to share images of the iconic volcano on social media. It was mentioned that there are between 40,000 to 50,000 tourists visiting Mount Fuji every year.

The Wi-Fi service will also allow hikers to get up to date information of weather conditions for their safety.

We’re waiting for the first hiker to take a selfie.
