Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha is located in the city center, about 10 minutes walking away from JR Fujinomiya station. And in the head shrine, you can catch the beautiful scenery of Fujisan ( Mt.Fuji ) on the right, for that reason, the shrine has been a beloved place of relief for citizens. The head shrine can root back to 27 B.C. Over 2,000 years ago, as a ritual site built in the foothills of Fujisan to bury angriness of one of those divine spirits, ‘Sengen Taishin’, which was believed to erupt Fujisan over and over again. (Appendix: In 806, the shrine was moved to its present address.) After hundreds of years, The Shogun, Ieyasu Tokugawa, who won Battle of Sekigahara, built and maintained other buildings as appreciation to the divine spirit.

The head shrine, the front shrine, and the tower-gate in the spot were built in the same era. And the head shrine which mainly was built to worship the main deity, ‘Konoha-no-Sakuyabime’, was registered as one of Japan national important cultural properties. On the summit of Fujisan, there remains a rear shrine ( called ‘Okumiya’, usually located behind the head shrine but dedicated to the same deity ), above the fifth station of Fujisan. Up there remain several rear shrines making the area to be precincts of Shinto. The shrines have so many people and travelers to come sightseeing that they are popular over the year, since every spring there are beautifully bloomed, whopping 500 cherry blossoms in the head shrine. And in May, Yabusame-festival (Appendix: Yabusame can be defined as a Horseback archery in English) is held, and in addition to those events, in November, Autumn festival is held too. In Autumn festival 20 running Japanese festival cars compete in a race. There’s a list of Mt.Fuji’s assets below the Japanese.

創建は2000年以上前の紀元前27年頃、噴火を繰り返す富士山の神霊「浅間大神」を鎮めるために、富士山麓に祀ったのがはじまりとされています(その後、806年に現在の地に建立)。 その後徳川家康が関ケ原の戦いに勝利したお礼として、建物の数々を造営し、整備しました。 現存する本殿や拝殿、楼門などは当時のもので、主祭神の木花之佐久夜毘売命を祀る本殿は国の重要文化財に指定されています。 山頂には奥宮があり、8合目以上は奥宮の境内地(ご神域)になります。毎年春には境内の500本の桜が見事に咲き揃い、5月にはやぶさめ祭り、11月には20の山車が各地で競り合いを行う秋祭りが行われるなど、年間を通じて大勢の参拝客や観光客で賑わっています。 下記に富士山の構成資産の一覧リストがありますので、ご覧ください。
