An essential place to visit for those who wish to view Mt. Fuji at its most beautiful. On clear days, the view of Fuji is stunning and in Spring provides one of the most iconic views with cherry blossoms alongside the pagoda with Fuji in the background. I wasn't fortunate enough to get cherry blossoms, but the clear view of Fuji is more than worth enough. The climb up is a little rough, but the view is worth it.

A must visit place if you are at the area. Quite a lot of people when the flower are full bloom. Expect some walk up the staircase for greater view. Taxi are available as well, expect some chargers as well to save some energy on staircase. Great view. Must highlight again. Worth the visit. Car park is available as well.

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.

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.

Very nice park with beautiful views of the town and of mount fuji. One can easily get away from the crowds and find quiet places with good views if desired.
