I used GPS to drive to the vicinity of the JR station, but the road to the parking lot of the temple itself is very narrow. It snowed heavily the day before(6 Feb)and the road was very slippery. If you want to take photos of Mount Fuji in the background, and you have to rely on some luck when visiting, it is best to wear light clothes and It will be more convenient to wear sports hiking shoes on the stairs.

This shrine offers a fantastic view of Mount Fuji and also has a nice pagoda, would recommend if you don’t mind walking up several hundred stairs. I’ve also heard that there is sometimes an extremely long wait though.

Mt. Fuji views + fall colors + Sunny weather = perfect visit! We visited this shrine on a bright sunny day in November and it was stunning. Mt. Fuji was visible all through the way up to the shrine along with bright read, yellow fall colors. Haven't seen it in other seasons, but visit during Autumn is a must. The climb up to the shrine wont take more than 20 min if you simply climb, but with such beautiful scenery, it took us more than an hour just capturing photos. Highly recommended to visit this when in the Fuji area. The five-storied pagoda at the top along with Mt. Fuji in the background is a perfect picture for a postcard. As with other places, this is heavily crowded and expect a lot of people. Located close to Kawaguchiko!

The view of Mount Fuji was absolutely stunning, with the Tokyo Skytree in the background. There were many shrines where you could pray, so be sure to prepare some coins for offerings. Alternatively, you could purchase a lucky charm as a souvenir for your family and friends.
