It seems the subject around the place was Mountain Fuji, all photo shooters were focusing on it.
Here is a hot sightseeing spot with crowds of people, photo taking spots were simply designated for tourists, if the weather is fine it is easy to have photos similar to the posters.
Some local guys worshipping and others are having a morning walk like walking up hill along a snaky path these make the whole place less touristy.

Beautiful views of Mount Fuji and prime real estate for the cherry blossoms that come in spring. There is a nice little deck at the top to grab the perfect photo at the top. There are also trials leading much farther up the mountain. Lots of food as well.

Be prepared to be amazed by the tremendous views of Mount Fuji. The ascent is not as difficult as the guides frighten you. 10min to go up and then fire up the camera. My recommendation is to arrive around 12o 'clock so that the clouds may disperse and five way to the mountain views.

Nice place to take photos with the Mt Fuji. To reach there, you have to walk up 400+ staircases, helping you to do some exercises which is good for your health.

Visited on 27th Dec. 2018. Very good place for taking a walk or viewing Fuji San. Here’s also a Shrine and a tower here. Can learn some local history from them. Very amazing tourism photo spot. Especially in good weather. All the Fuji San is viewable.
