We stumbled upon this shrine without knowing what it was or meaning to visit, however we were very glad that we did. The shrine is a short walk (maybe 15 minutes at the most) from the hotel we stayed at, Fuji View Hotel. When we...More
The shrine is small and simple, but set in a peaceful wooded area. It makes a nice mid-way stop as one climbs the 400 steps up to the Chureito Pagoda. I especially liked the dragon fountain that provides the cleansing water for your hands before...More
Go here if you want the postcard view of Mt Fuji with the cherry blossoms and the Chureito Pagoda. Need to take a 300 yen one way, 15 min train ride to get to the Syimoyoshida Station from Kawaguchiko Station and a small walk to...More

The views on a clear day are spectacular on Mt Fuji. You have to come here and spend at least an hour. You will be rewarded for your time. FYI you can drive up to it if you dont fancy the stairs. Watch out for...More

Highly recommended to take a train from Kawaguchiko Station on the Fujikyu Line to Shimoyoshida Station and do a brief 10 mins walk to the entrance of the pagoda. Once exit from Shimoyoshida Station there is a guide map on the walking path to the...More

Hi, for cherry blossom the dates always vary every year. So you've gotta Google online nearer the date. As for cost of train travel, you can always check hyperdia website for the exact amount. I'm not aware of any food available near the pagoda but you can always have your meals at Kawaguchiko Station.
