(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Visit Fujisan Hongū Sengen Taisha, 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.
