The entry way to this shrine is absolutely stunning. Tall cedar trees. Moss covered statues and lanterns. The January sun came through the tree branches and made for the most beautiful pictures. They have a fire ceremony at this shrine, in honor of Mt. Fuji's...More

Pretty relaxing and tranquil place in a wooded area. The trees are huge. It was raining so we only viewed the shrine. The shrine is very ornate. Due to the rain, there wasn’t a crowd.

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...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...More
