Temple sights in Fuji Go Ko
- Sort by:
A necessary preliminary to the ascent was a visit to this deeply wooded, atmospheric temple, built in 1615 but thought to have been the site of a shrine as early as 788. It is worth a visit for its 1000-year-old cedar; its main gate, which is rebuilt every 60 years (slightly larger each time); and its two one-tonne mikoshi used in the annual Yoshida no Himatsuri (Yoshida Fire Festival). From Mt Fuji Station you can walk (15 minutes) or take a bus to Sengen-jinja-mae (¥150, five minutes).
