The name "Horaibashi" is derived from "Horai," a mythical mountain in Chinese folklore that symbolizes longevity and immortality. The bridge's long, straight design is said to resemble the path to this paradise, hence its name.


Constructed entirely out of wood, Horaibashi Bridge is supported by a series of wooden pillars driven into the riverbed. The bridge's structure is designed to be easily disassembled and rebuilt in the event of damage from floods or other natural disasters, a feature that has ensured its survival through the years.

Dear Isabel and Michael, Thank you very much for your review, which I am really appreciated and encourage me a lot for my future work as a guide. What makes me so pleased was that you were satisfied with the tour though the weather was not with our side and we couldn't see Mt. Fuji. I wish you keep happy and enjoyable journey. Best regards, Macky Hagiya

Awesome day around Mt Fuji

Macky took me to multiple places around Mt Fuji I would have never know about. Several great views of Mt Fuji from the various stops. He was very kind and informative. I can't imagine how I could have made the day any better!

The Kamakura Shogunate, established by Minamoto no Yoritomo in 1192, marked the beginning of feudal military government.

후지산에 대한 이야기는 이 신사를 빼놓고는 이야기 할 수 없을 정도로 후지 신앙의 중심지이며 후지산을 경배하고 관장하는 신사로 후지산 8부 능선에서 정상까지를 경내로 하는 후지산 신앙의 근원지입니다. 또 신사는 후지산 지하수 샘물이 흘러 나오는 곳에 둘러싸여 있으며 지하수 샘물이 모여서 연못을 만들고 그 연못 안에 많은 물고기와 오리가 떠 있는 모습은 가히 아름다운 후지산의 한 폭의 그림을 보는 것 같습니다. 전국1,300여개의 센겐 신사의 총 본산이며 경내의 아름다운 색채와 모습의 본전, 배전, 벚꽃문은 이에야스의 건립 기증물입니다. 그 중 본전과 배전은 중요 문화재로 지정되어 있습니다. 다카사고 청주제조회사 오미야 쉼터의 만남의 광장 신사의 서쪽에는 1820년부터 후지산 지하수 샘물로 맛있게 술을 빚어온 다카사고 청주 제조 회사가 있습니다. 연하고 단 맛의 후지산 지하수의 맛을 만끽할 수 있습니다. 또 신사의 앞에는 아담한 후지노미야 상가가 있고 그 곳에는 조용한 쉼터의 만남의 광장이 있는데 누구나 부담없이 휴식을 취할 수 있는 자유 공간입니다. 깨끗한 샘물에 의해 가꾸어져 온 후지노미야의 식문화를 계절의 바람과 함께 맛보세요.
