Money making scheme trial in progress.

The crowd control seems understandable/reasonable to prevent climbers' accidents from overcrowded.

That sign chap has a sweet gig.

He's probably on minimum wage. If only he'd joint the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union in Australia, he'd be on 20 million yen a year...

How realistic is this rehearsal? Dealing with a few polite Japanese quietly waiting in line will hardly prepare the gate staff for hundreds of tourists jostling to be the first through the gate. Maybe they need bouncers.

Money making is a good thing. Power to them!

Standing in one spot all day holding a sign is a "sweet gig"?!!

The gate will be closed between 4 p.m. and 3 a.m.

So, the plan is to have a guardman standing there (and a bloke with a sign?) from 4 pm to 3 am.

Sounds about right.
