This is almost a 'must see', its a really decorative, beautiful, colorful shrine in a thick grove of huge giant cedar trees but close to the road with ample parking so pretty easy to get to and find. Its a busy shrine with a number of uniformed helpers manning a shop, its also clearly an important local shrine as there... More

If you love old Japanese architecture, shintoism or nature than this is an amazing place to come on a day trip in the Fujikawaguchi-ko region. Mount Fuji has been worshipped for thousands of years and this shrine is one of the oldest. The walk up to the entrance is beautiful (see photos) and the shrine itself just sings with age... More

The temple is located in the middle of giant, ancient cedar trees on a place where pilgrims used to commence their ascent to the holy mountain. The Yoshida trail still begins here, and was indeed tempting in front of us, inviting towards the pilgrimage. But we had to resist since the climbing season was not yet open (and nowadays, climbers... More

The entrance to the shrine was very quaint and the walk was not too far. The main passage was lined up by stone lanterns. We came late afternoon and was a little bit chilly. Bring a light jacket and some hiking shoes (dirt road). Sakura season was over, but some of the trees had plenty of flowers. Bring a nice... More

Not far from the Mount Fuji five lakes. Just off main road is this beautiful shrine, very peaceful. Easy parking. A very nice side trip when you come visit the Mount Fuji and lakes area. Outside the main entrance, around half a kilometer you will find a fruit stand where you can you some fresh local produce at very good... More

There are over a thousand Sengen shrines dedicated to the god of Mt Fuji in this area. This one probably has the most history and could be considered the "main" sengen shrine of the area. Don't confuse this one with the one that's about 3km away on a hill where people climb 400 steps to get their nice Fuji pictures.... More
