- This tour features three key places deeply linked to Mt. Fuji worship.

The Oshi district

Former House of the Togawa Family (Museum featuring Mt. Fuji worship)

- This lodging has a history of 250 years and used to offer accommodations to Mt. Fuji pilgrims. The owner, who also worked as a Shinto priest, preached the teachings of Mt. Fuji worship to pilgrims who came there.

Lunch at Japanese-style restaurant

Their firm and chewy texture may surprise you!

Kitaguhi Hongu Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine

- The shrine in the dense woods has the history of over 1900 years. Dedicated to the deity of Mt. Fuji, it used to be the gateway to Mt. Fuji pilgrimage.

The 1000-year-old sacred trees and the magnificent buildings in Shinto-style architecture have created the solemn and serene atmosphere.

Funatsu Lava Tree Molds
