Mt. Fuji, World Cultural Heritage, is well-known as the beautiful mountain abundant with wonderful nature worldwide. Its magnificent and divine appearance has captivated the tourists. Through this tour, you discover the different aspect of Mt. Fuji as the sacred mountain revered and admired by people in the old days. We have many historically significant places related to Mt. Fuji worship, so why don't you visit two recommended sites to get deep knowledge about its cultural side? "Oshino Hakkai springs" and "Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen shrine" welcome you!
The first destination is "Oshino Hakkai springs". The groundwater from Mt. Fuji is gushing out of the ponds where Mt. Fuji pilgrims purified themselves before ascending Mt. Fuji in those days. You enjoy a short walk along the quiet riverside, avoiding the bustling area. The trail leads to "Toen-ji temple" where you have a special experience. The details are described in the itinerary.
After Oshino Hakkai springs, you stop by "Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen shrine" which used to be the gateway of Mt. Fuji pilgrimage in the old days. The shrine quietly stands in the dense forest. The 1000-year old trees and the elaborate buildings in Shinto-style architecture have created solemn and serene atmosphere. For lunch, the local specialties including "HOTO noodles" and "YOSHIDA Udon noodles" are available at the Japanese-style restaurant.
