Should have a great view of Mt. Fuji with the five storied pagoda, but wasn't a clear day when I was here. Although it is still nice and refreshing place to visit. You could stop by here first if you're on your way to Mt.Fuji, Kawaguchiko, etc. If you didn't bring your own car, there are quite a lot of steps to climb, need a little effort but when you get to the top it'll be all worth it. The shrine in the entrance is worth your prayers also and beautiful to see.

Great park with an iconic photo spot. You can catch a glimpse of a five story pagoda with Mt Fuji in the backdrop on a clear day. There is an observation deck for the best view, but it will most likely be crowded (as it is a popular spot) if you go during peak times. You will need to climb a few hundred stairs to reach the top, but the view is worth it. At the base of the park, there is a big torii gate and a shrine. There is a free parking lot with a washroom as well. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

The best view spot of Mt.Fuji I have ever seen.Though it's so hard to go up long stairs,the collaboration of five-storied pagoda and Mt.Fuji seen from the top is wonderful!
