Fuji religious faith, looking after the lodgings and meals of Fujiko believers who were making the pilgrimage up Mt. Fuji. This is a presently existing invaluable building which supported the Mt. Fuji faith. The main building which was constructed in 1768 has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan in 2011. It is also a constituent asset of the World Heritage Fuji, and you can see materials such goshinzen room and mountain climbing costumes at the Residence.

          Yamanashi Main Areas


          Yamanashi prefecture is the proud home of one of Japan’s most celebrated icons: Mount Fuji. Although the mountain straddles both Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the most breathtaking views of Fuji-san can be seen from the Fuji Five Lakes north of the mountain in Yamanashi prefecture. The plethora of outdoor activities in and around the lakes all have the benefit of the country’s highest mountain as their backdrop, and we can assure you that it is an unforgettable sight.
