Religious Ruins at the Summit
Religious related sites, such as Fujisan Hongu Sengen Shrine Okumiya or statues of the Buddha, are located at the summit. Peaks such as Kengamine Peak, Mt. Hakusan-dake, and Mt. Kusushi-dake, located along the crater wall, were in the past believed to be depicted in the world of mandalas. Worshipping/admiring the sunrise or the tour of "Ohachi-meguri" around the summit are also based on Fujisan worship and remain popular activities among climbers nowadays.
Omiya/Murayamaguchi Trail (current Fujimiyaguchi Trail)
A trail starting at Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine. Climbing started after Matsudai Shonin began his religious activities there in the early 12th century. Practitioners ascending from Omiya/Murayamaguchi are depicted in the "Kenpon Chakushoku-zu" (Mandala painted on silk), apparently painted in the 16th century.
Suyamaguchi Trail (currently Gotembaguchi Trail)
A trail starting at Suyama Sengen-jinja Shrine, reaching the southeastern part of the mountaintop.
Subashiriguchi Trail
A trail starting at Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine, merging with Yoshidaguchi at the 8th station. The rich forest zone makes it a nature-appreciating route.
Yoshidaguchi Trail
A trail starting at Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine. In the latter half of the 14th century, temple lodging had already opened for climbers, and facilities for general climbers were established. It is the most popular trail among climbers today.
Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine
A shrine originating from the yohaiisho (place to pray) enshrined in Sengen-jinja Shrine. Strongly connected to Fuji-ko, a donation made by the Fuji-ko leader Murakami Mitsukiyo enabled restoration work to be done in 1730, which is the scenery we see now.
Lake Saiko
One of the pilgrimages of "Uchi Hakkai Meguri" (circling the crater), which forms part of Fuji-ko's Three Great Practices. Also known as the habitat of Fuji-marimo (spherical moss), designated a natural monument, and of the endangered species "kunimasu" (black kokanee).
Lake Shojiko
Lake Kawaguchiko, Lake Yamanakako, Lake Saiko, Lake Shojiko and Lake Motosuko are collectively called Fujigoko (Fuji Five Lakes). Unlike Lake Kawaguchiko and Lake Yamanakako which are developed in terms of tourism, Lake Shojiko has not undergone development. Some say the Fujisan seen from the northern side of Lake Shojiko is the best in Japan.
Lake Motosuko
The reflection of Fujisan is called "Sakasa Fuji" (inverted image of Fuji) and has often been used as a motif of Japanese bank notes.
