Tranquil surroundings, fresh air and cool Mount Fuji spring water available for you to freshen up or drink before you journey on. From the carpark and on a clear day, one can get a majestic view of Mount Fuji

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
