Kana-dorii Gate

Historical Monument
A Torii gate just a five-minute walk from Mt. Fuji Station or a five-minute drive from the Kawaguchiko Interchange. It towers over the street and has the kanji for Mt. Fuji framed upon it. It was first built in 1788 and was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt. The current gate was constructed in 1957. It was originally called the Karakane-dorii as it was made from bronze imported from ancient China ('Kara' meaning ancient China and 'Kane' meaning bronze) and the current Kana-dorii name is said to be a corruption of the original name. It serves to welcome believers who are coming to climb Mt. Fuji and passing through the gate moves you from the secular world to the world of the Mt. Fuji faith.
