This is a great place for a day trip and the evening drums and prayers at sunset (only over loudspeaker) add to the ambience of a real temple. The scenery is stunning and on a clear day you can see Mt Fuji from the summit.

Great outdoors experience with adaptability for all kinds of visitors from the very Young with baby cars to the elderly that search for a more relaxed stroll with friends or his pets. I personally recommend the more wild strenous course for those looking for a more serious hiking adventure the best reward is enjoying Sakura season with the snowy beauty of Fuji San peack in the background.

We had our first shrine visit of 2019 in this temple. There were so many people but it seems that was to be expected. There were policemen and other people there to organize the long lines for the first day of the year. People camp out as early as midnight to get a good spot to watch the first sunrise as well.
