Such an incredible Shrine. I visited this shrine off the road and walked the beautiful path to the shrine. The path was full of beautifully huge trees and structures. Once I entered the grounds of the shrine I was fascinated by the trees and clear water running through. The shrine itself is beautiful with a lot to see. One of the trails to Fuji begins here as well. Just an absolutely beautiful shrine and area that is well worth a visit if in the area.

Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine is the most respected Shrine in Fuji Yoshida city at the base of Mt. Fuji.
It is the step to climb Mt. Fuji for the pilgrims back in the old days so it could be said as the Zero station.
Although the number of pilgrims declined today, it still used for the same purpose.

Most Japanese follow 2 religions, Shinto and Buddhism.
They are different from each other but this shrine left us traces to know how they merged in the past.
A very interesting historical and cultural trace to discovery.

The famous fire festival in end of August takes place from here as well.

The weather is cold, the morning is serene.
Tall & big old trees aligned the gravel pathways to the shrine.
People are on line to take a glimpse of the so called shrine.

This shrine is situated in a beautiful forest and has some trees estimated to be over 120 years old. Not much else to see here as quite isolated

This shrine felt genuine, magical, zen and beautiful. Loved the walk through the tall trees with the mossy stone lanterns and the toriis. Nearly no tourists, just locals praying. Loved it.

My favourite shrine in Japan. Been there in autumn, winter, and summer, and I enjoyed taking a walk in this shrine during every single visit. Very zen and magical atmosphere. Makes you feel like an ant walking through the gigantic stone lanterns and trees along the path. The trees must have been a thousand, if not, a hundred years old. It’s a great place to visit if you’re in the area.

The entrance is up a few steps and follows a long path of lanterns leading to the Shrine. This Shrine is a smaller Shrine than many others in the cities but is a peaceful place to stop and see on the way to Mt Fuji.

There are lots of small intricate detail to look at here too. Definitely stop here on your way to the mountain but we saw no tour buses. We were with a private guide for the day from Tokyo and the people visiting were people who had driven themselves.

We arrived at our hotel (Fujisan station hotel) a little after 12 from Haneda airport. As check-in time is not until 15.00 we decided to have lunch at Fujisan station then walk to the shrine. It's a fair walk to the shrine & quite a steep hill. The shrine wasn't at all touristy & very tranquil, so peaceful. On leaving the shrine we turned left & took another road down the hill having dinner at Gustos before returning to the hotel to check-in.

You can take the bus from Fujisan Station (platform #3) to Sengen-jinja Shrine. Stop right in the front. Tiny rocks pavement all over the shrine. Definitely damaged my shoe.

The shrine is small with a few vendors selling various items from purse to little wooden figure.
