The first time I came here was almost evening. Mount Fuji was not visible at that time. Although it was a good visit, the second time was far better.
There were way too many people though because it's sakura season.
The long drive and the climb to the pagoda were definitely worth it.

Nothing short of amazing! It has the Japanese "holy trinity": a pagoda, cherry blossoms and Mt. Fuji.

This place was unknown, even most Japanese are not aware this place existed until recent years. Although this place is the best place to view Mount Fuji, always including the Pagoda in the picture, I guess very few people (tourists) realize that this is a Shrine dedicated to pay honor to those who died in the War.
Yes, this may be an amazing spot for tourist to see the grandeur and majestic beauty of Mt.Fuji, but let us remind ourselves that places like this in Japan should be treated with great respect, not just for sightseeing but for the reasons this places exist.
