The shrine is small and simple, but set in a peaceful wooded area. It makes a nice mid-way stop as one climbs the 400 steps up to the Chureito Pagoda. I especially liked the dragon fountain that provides the cleansing water for your hands before...More

Go here if you want the postcard view of Mt Fuji with the cherry blossoms and the Chureito Pagoda. Need to take a 300 yen one way, 15 min train ride to get to the Syimoyoshida Station from Kawaguchiko Station and a small walk to...More

This is such a beautiful place, serene hike to the pagoda. Scenery is wonderful. Check the weather before you go, want a good view of Fuji! The only reason I would take a star off would be because foreign visitors seem to struggle greatly finding...More

this small shrine, which in itself isn't very interesting is well worth the detour if you are in the area (if the weather is nice) as the views of Mt. Fuji are incomparable. You can really feel how huge the mountain is from this angle....More

This is Asama Sengen Shrine. There is no Chureito Pagoda here. The Pagoda is at the Arakura Sengen Shrine near Shimo-Yoshida station.

Fantastic view!!! A must see if you are in the Mt. Fuji area!!! On a clear beautiful day, you have the Red Pagoda and Fuji-San in your background. So, bring a nice camera and snap away. Plenty of parking at the bottom of the hill....More
