Create an itinerary including Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine
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.

  • Beautiful shrine. Went on a date here, so I didn't spend as much time as I usually do reading about the history of the site. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite shrines in Japan of the 50 or so I've visited. Clean, cheap parking, beautiful architecture and scenery. Would go again.
  • One of the cleanest, most peaceful shrines in Japan. An absolute must-visit for anyone going through Fujinomiya or to Mt.Fuji.
