    Chureito Pagoda of Fujiyoshida is one of the go-to places to catch a perfect Mt. Fuji shot. This attraction has a pagoda which is the Arakura Sengen Shrine. This pagoda is located on top of the hill therefore it would be best if you’re wearing flat boots during winter or sneakers during summer so your legs won’t get hurt during a climb on the stairs. A very amazing panoramic view of Mt. Fuji is worth a visit when you reach the top of the attraction. A must-try:

    It’s a must-try to ring a bell in Shinto shrines as it is said to believe that it acquires positive power and good luck while repelling bad spirits. I rang the bell three times because I believe that the number 3 is a universal holy number and the number of genesis. Try Omikuji! Omikuji is a Japanese fortune-telling activity which is similar to fortune cookie. There are Omikuji to almost all Shinto shrines in Japan. All you need to do is pay 100 JPY then shake a box full of numbered sticks then pick one. Bring back the number to the shake box and select your Omikuji (fortune paper) from one of the drawers then read it afterward. Some shrines offer English translations and some are not. Depending on your fate, you can keep the Omikuji if it’s a good one but leave it if it’s a bad curse. If it’s a bad curse, you can tie it on a pole or a tree and leave it in the shrine. I got a small blessing Omikuji so I kept it with me to attract good luck!

    We had a really pleasant trip here. Most people just walk up the many stairs to the Pagoda, but we carried right on up the hill and into the forest up there. There is an Iris field up there that would look incredible in Spring time. Sadly we weren't there at the right time of the year for that, but that would be a real treat to see the field of iris flowers with Mt Fuji in the background and also surrounded by forest.

    Definitely one of the most stunning viewing point in Kawaguchiko area.
    A beautiful spot throughout the year, once in your life must come place.
    If you like to hike there is a walking trail you can walk for couple of hours.

    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.

    A long 400 steps climb leading to the shrine which has the amazing view of the mountain.. you can use the road that goes round around instead of climbing the stairs..

    The Mt Fuji Station is great and easy to get to and around. I was here often while visiting the Fuji area. I took the Fuji Excursion here, bus to Station 5, and took a bus back to Tokyo from here and it was all very easy and well organized. The station has a Mos Burger, small bakery, shops, and restaurants. Not to much else to say but this is a nice and organized train station.

    This was a beautiful shrine I visited while on the way to the pagoda. This shrine is in town and pretty easy to get to, there are even parking spots available. I love these types of shrines in Japan. The wooden shrines surrounded by huge trees. This shrine doesn't seem to be that popular, so it's unlikely you'll run into tourists which is nice. This is just a nice traditional shrine in Fujiyoshida.

    I hiked the Yoshida Route to the summit from the 5th station. I stayed the night at station 8 so I did not do it all in one day. The route starts off pretty flat between 5th and 6th station, then it zig zags upward to station 7. After station 7 though the trail get steeper and much rockier. I wouldn't say the trail is that difficult but it is no walk in the park either. I did this in July of 2021 and the weather was not great! It was very windy and rainy, couldn't see anything, but still a great experience. I felt the trail was well marked and pretty easy to follow. The descending route is different which is nice, so there are no traffic jams or anything. We did not see the sunrise as it was cloudy the next day. I would definitely recommend the Yoshida Route, I think it can be hiked by anyone at any skill level. Obviously take the necessary precautions and be smart. The mountain can change at any time! Enjoy!

    Came here as part of our visit around Mt Fuji area, here is what we think:

    Ambience: 3.5/5
    Cleanliness: 5/5
    Fun: 1/5
    Physical Ease: 5/5
    Value for Money: 5/5

    Nice scenic views, to take photo, and definitely doable easily, especially with kids. Just that other than the view and souvenirs there’s nothing much to do. Good to drop by for some pictures.

    This Oshi House have history more than 300 years. If you know Japanese, you can hire a Japanese guide., He will show you all the old house from that street to the kitaguchi Hougu Fuji Sengen. It last 2 hours and costs 3000JPY. I have to say if you know Japanese, it definitely worth because the guide will tell you a lot of Japanese history stories and ferry tales. But they only have Japanese guide, thats really a problem. I do hope they have English or Chinese guide, it would be good for culture diffusion.

    I'm not sure that this qualifies as a tourist destination. It's basically something that you'll experience by being in the center of Fujiyoshida on a nice day, whatever the season. Still, it's a nice spot with plenty of eating and drinking options nearby. You're also at the heart of the historic Fujian-related sites. Lots to do without actually climbing the volcano.
