A beautiful, calm and very peaceful shrine to visit and explore. Near Mt Fuji, it is a large complex but not so busy and very enjoyable. I highly recommend that if you’re near the famous Mt Fuji, that you visit.

This is one massive shrine. It is ideal if you are visiting the Kawaguchi lake area. Some of the tree shrines and here are very old holding history about Fuji and the relationship between Fujis spiritual side. There's a nice Inn right across the road which has s prayer area hundreds of years old
