[Higashiguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine]
These shrines that used to be the starting point of climbing routes is still rich in nature of Mt. Fuji
Most people start climbing from the 5th station but long ago when there were no cars, people started climbing at the very bottom where the shrines are located. That is why these shrines have been worshiped as a sacred place from ancient times. The "Fuji Sengen Shrine", also called the "Fujisan Higashiguchi Hongu", located at Subashiriguchi is one of them. In the large precincts of more than 16,000 square meters, Japanese cedar trees and deciduous trees of more than 100 years old flourish and the shrine groves spread. It was registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
