A Japanese tourist has died attempting to climb Australian tourist attraction Uluru, police said this morning, adding to the death toll on the world's largest monolith.

Officials said the man collapsed Tuesday while attempting to climb a steep section of the rock formation. Another Japanese tourist died while climbing Uluru in 2008.

The police officer said the man's death was not being considered suspicious.

The last person to die on the rock was in 2010.

More than 250,000 people visit the landmark, formerly known as Ayers Rock, each year.

Huawei Releases Honor 10 GT With Upgrades

Vincent Forrester, of the Anangu community - the traditional owners of the land - expressed sadness at his death, saying: "Please say sorry to the Japanese people there, they've lost one of their own".

Climbing Uluru as a practice is set to be formally banned for everyone from October 2019 onwards, thanks to a unanimous decision by the parks board a year ago.

The two-year lull period was also set to allow tourists who booked trips to the Red Centre to complete the climb, if they choose to do so. If I travel to another country and there is a sacred site, an area of restricted access, I don't enter or climb it, I respect it. We are not stopping tourism, just this activity. These signs have been in place since 1992, but have proven to only be a mildly effective deterrent.

"It is the same here for Anangu [Uluru's traditional owners]". The community feels a deep sense of responsibility for the safety of visitors there. We worry about you and we worry about your family. The climb can be unsafe.

According to authorities, only 16 per cent of visitors made the climb between 2011 and 2015.
