Home to this iconic scenery, Arakurayama Sengen Park is one of the Top 100 spots for viewing Mt. Fuji in the Kanto region.

The park begins at the base of Mt. Arakurayama and extends up the mountain. At the top of a 398 stair hike is an observation deck that looks out over the cityscape of Fujiyoshida City and majestic Mt. Fuji towering above. Though the Spring sakura (cherry blossom) season is best for capturing the symbolic image of Mt. Fuji, cherry blossoms and five-storied pagoda, the park can be enjoyed throughout the year with a stunning view that changes with the seasons.

This shrine is said to have had its start in 100 A.D., when a small shrine was built to celebrate the visit of prince Yamato Takeru-no Mikoto to this hill when he was on his way to Kai Province from Hakone. Later in 788, an altar was built to enshrine Sengen God at the present site to halt the frequent eruptions of Mt. Fuji.

While Mt. Fuji had been worshipped since ancient times and regarded as sacred, with the rise of mountain worship, people eventually began climbing mountain for ascetic training and this shrine became a basis of Mt. Fuji worship. In the Edo era, "Fuji-ko" worship gained explosive popularity and this area flourished as its sacred spot. The site was designated as one of Mt. Fuji World Heritage Site Assets in 2013.
