Around the World Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 1 Mount Fuji

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Pack those bags and grab your boarding passes because it’s time to go Around the World with The Simpsons!  The Around the World Event is in full swing in our pocket-sized Springfields and that can only mean one thing….all new prize tracks to work our way through!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Japanese Pins (ico_cur_aroundtheworld_japanpin_lg) to unlock each prize!

The First Act 2 Prize awarded at 4,815 ico_cur_aroundtheworld_japanpin_lg is Mount Fuji, because Springfield needs something to erupt…


So let’s take a closer look at this first prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 4,815 ico_cur_aroundtheworld_japanpin_lg you’ll automatically be awarded Mount Fuji and you’ll see this message popup:


And you’ll have the option to place it in your Springfield immediately or store it in your inventory for later.  Remember if you store it you’ll have to go back into your inventory to retrieve it.

Mount Fuji does come with some an short questline, here’s a look:

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 1
Apu starts

Quimby: I hereby commemorate the opening of Springfield’s very own replica Mount Fuji.
Bart: It’s a mountain. So what?
Skinner: Where to begin! Mount Fuji is a sacred Shinto site, a uniquely symmetrical stratovolcano, and it’s home to the rare Japanese nuthatch! Our town will soon be inundated with eager nuthatch hunters.
Apu: Birdwatchers! Double the price of floppy hats and leather sandals!
Make Entrepreneurs Increase Prices- x3. 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp Freemium and $260, 70xp Premium

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 2
Lisa starts

Moe: This Mount Fuji is taking up a lot of space, but it ain’t making me no money. It’s like when Barney passes out on my doorstep.
Lisa: Well, we could lead tours of pilgrims eager to meditate on its sacred slopes.
Moe: Love the humor, kid, but try to focus.
Bart: We could build a giant roller coaster inside it. “The Fuji Plunge of Fear.”
Moe: Now, *this* kid gets it!
Make Quimby Recruit Feargineers- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 3
Lisa starts

Lisa: Mayor Quimby, Mount Fuji is a sacred place of calm serenity. A roller coaster would be completely inappropriate. I will not let you turn our cheap replica in a low-rent JapanWorld into a lousy tourist attraction. Mr. Flanders and I are starting a protest.
Mayor Quimby: Wonderful. My father always said, all roller-coaster publicity is good roller-coaster publicity. He really did.

Make Ned Protest- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 4
Lisa starts

Homer: Either there’s a rumble in my belly, or that mountain is happy to see me.
Mt. Fuji: People of Springfield, I am angry you are trying to build a roller coaster inside me, like I’m a cheap amusement park hill.
Lisa: I knew it! You want respectful pilgrims, right?
Mt. Fuji: No, they suck too. Everybody just scram, or I’ll destroy you with a terrible eruption.
Quimby: We hear and obey, Mighty Mountain. Er, vote Quimby!
Make Springfielders Worship Mount Fuji- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp Freemium and $260, 70xp Premium
Lisa: Bart, that was you inside the mountain making it talk, wasn’t it?
Bart: Yep. That giant hollow interior makes your voice sound huge!
Lisa: You think you could have “Mount Fuji” order the Mayor to fund a band camp?
Bart: Anything for you, sis.


Here are some quick facts about Mount Fuji:


Size: 16×16

  1. How do I prepare the bullies for an influx of birdies. There isn’t a go to or start button. What do I need to do. Simpsons tapped out

  2. This may not be the right place to post this, but does anyone else’s game keep making them have to re-download all 600+ MB and log back into their EA accounts ? I’m starting to think it’s just my phone but I’m not exactly sure. It’s a real inconvenience to my Springfield and my phone’s data plan since I don’t have wifi.

    • That tends to happen if you don’t have enough free space for the large cache this game tends to have, or if a file is corrupt. Free up some space if you can, see if that helps. If it doesn’t go to a coffee shop with wifi and totally reinstall.

  3. Like the Eiffel Tower, Mount Fuji is h-u-g-e (EA missed an opportunity to scale things down to Las Vegas faux size (lol) and I’m soooo glad Osaka Squid isn’t an NPC (lol worthy Task thanks to clever dialog) 👍

    Almost have enough for the KTV Building (yes!) 😀

  4. Does anyone know if we can still get act 1 prizes? If I buy the next one will donuts will it unlock the others I missed?

  5. I wish I could replace a section of my mountain range with this.

  6. how would you move mount fuju?

  7. How do you spread the bug??? Enjoying the rest of this new addition, Tapped out rules, (from a 39 year old dad who nicked this account off his daughter, hahahahaha)

  8. Bummed there isn’t a rollercoaster skin, thought we would get one with the questline.

  9. It’s beginning to make sense why they gave us so much land and water….Mountain that takes up a whole square…. Castle that pretty much takes a whole square…tons of other buildings to come….hmm

  10. On another note, My Japanese Maples are disappearing into the void when stored. Tried looking in each individual section and looking through the 3 main sections. If someone else had the same problem or knows where they are, please inform this blind person.

    • Try looking through the general inventory instead of any sections. New items are often uncategorized.

    • Mine stayed in the general inventory but the picture of them wasn’t there- it just looks like an empty space in my inventory. But when I clicked on it, the maple tree appeared when I was placing it

      • Yes, I slowed down and found the japanese maples by name. Before I was zipping through looking for the red tree.

        Unintentional silver lining, they are Japanese maples so they must be ninja trees… I’ll see my self out.

  11. NOTE: When tapped it erupts, yes, but not until you go through the quest line, I’ve tried and it didn’t work until it hit a certain part of the quest line.

  12. this thing is ugly. its like a huge blister. “Storage”.

  13. It’s beautiful 😍 I love this prize!

  14. Nice decoration and it erupts, nice addition to my ever expanding town

  15. I just noticed that the background music is still the French style Simpson’s theme. Wouldn’t it be nice if the theme could change to reflect the country in each act? Just sayin….

  16. Huge, but awesome – I can only imagine how many donuts this will cost in the next year or so when it’s re-released as a premium item…

  17. So far, this is the best prize from act 2. Better than the Squid or the Free Land Token at least, that’s as far as I got. Might change my mind once I receive the KTV-Building, or the Sumo Stadium, though.

    • Agreed – I especially love it because it’s a perfect background to place one of the Chinese dragons!!!!

      The fumes from the asteroid crater is wafting into the Dragon’s nose while it hovers next to the clouds. And when Fuji explodes… it covers the Dragon’s head….

  18. I like the mount Fuji prize. It is big as all heck though. other than that:

    I don’t math very well but, My flu percentage is at 100.13

    And for those wondering, The squid is a full character with a funny/possible slightly disturbing 1hr job.

  19. Damnnnnnnnn……that’s huge

  20. I love this prize. I know it is huge, but I absolutely love it! Can’t wait to properly set this area up!!!

  21. I wasn’t thrilled that this was a 1:1 scale model, but it actually isn’t that bad. Going to make a nice Japanese garden area around it.

  22. Love this decoration! Can’t stop tapping it 🙂
