[Fujisan Hongu Sengentaisha]

The central location for worship of Mt. Fuji that was registered as a World Heritage Site

There are more than 1,300 Sengen-shrines in Japan that enshrines Mt. Fuji as a sacred object. Fujisan Hongu Sengentaisha, located in Fujinomiya, is honored as the head shrine of all Sengen-shrines in Japan. A legend tells that in 806 AD, the shrine had been moved to the present location with plenty of spring water from Mt. Fuji, and many historically famous Japanese warlords worshiped this shrine. The two-storied main shrine, designated as a national important cultural property, and the clear pond formed from spring water are the highlights of this place.
