Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, Fujinomiya

4.5
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Fujinomiya
Visit Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, a volcano sanctuary at the foot of Mount Fuji established during the reign of Emperor Suinin (29 BCE to 70 CE). Part of a larger cultural site, the shrine shows the distinctive sengen-zukuri style with bright colors on the main two-storied worship hall. Although many original structures were destroyed in earthquakes, the inner shrine, outer shrine, and tower gate remain. Considered the entrance to the mountain, the temple is a starting point for many climbing tours. For a more peaceful experience, relax in the temple garden of cherry trees as koi fish swim in the large pond.

  • Visit on the first weekend of October. I spent three hours visiting from Kanagawa in the middle of a traffic jam in Tomei. The weather is good, and it is the best location with A beautiful pond of spring water, carp, and Mt. Fuji in the back. I think the cherry blossom season in spring is even better. I would like to visit again in the spring.

  • The main shrine of Asama Taisha is located here and there. At the top of Mt. Fuji, there is okunomiya, and it is the precincts of this shrine from the eighth to the top. Mt. Fuji is a special mountain for Japanese people, but i think it is also a special shrine in the sense that it is the center of the Faith of Mt. Fuji. The main shrine that Ieyasu Tokugawa sent to is an important cultural property of the country.
