Fuji Sengen Shrine, formerly known as Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Jinja, is a Shinto Shrine dedicated to Mt Fuji, and historically the starting point for pilgrims climbing Mt Fuji. The main structure of Fuji Sengen Shrine was originally built in 788 and underwent reconstruction in the 17th century. The Fuji Sengen Shrine complex includes additional buildings: a shrine dedicated to Takeda Shingen (1521-1573), and a red torii gate at the entrance, which is taken down and rebuilt every "Fuji Year" (60 years).

Mount Fuji Tours
If you want to see both Mt Fuji and
Hakone in one day it is easier to take one of the organised tours from
Tokyo to see Mt Fuji as accessing Mt Fuji
public transport is more challenging and best done over two days. Of course
trying to see
Hakone and Mt Fuji is
going to be a compromise as there is not enough time in one day to see both
properly. We recommend doing this trip on a week day as the roads out of
Tokyo can be packed on the weekends. Most organised tours
include the near by
Hakone and some include a return trip on the
Shinkansen (bullet train).
