FUJI SENGEN SHRINE FUJIYOSHIDA
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).
