Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, now offers its visitors Wi-Fi and a chance for everyone to post their selfies online without even wasting a second.

It seems Wi-Fi is everywhere nowadays, from our homes, offices, parks and even subway stations.

But the more it spreads the more we’ll all be obliged by our employers and other people in our lives demanding our time to check our e-mails and be available even when we’re on vacation or taking a hike up the highest mountain in Japan.

As of July 10, the government officials in Japan made Wi-Fi available to everyone on its 12,389ft high Mount Fuji. The days of escaping the hustle and bustle of big cities into the nature’s wonders seem to be coming to an end, at least in terms of going offline for a while.

The Japanese government officials explained their decision by saying that tourists from the U.S. and Europe actually complained of not having phone serving at some 7,562ft above sea level, so the Japanese decided to accommodate their guest by providing Wi-Fi.
