This shrine is said to have originated 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, and to remember his blessing message at the time, "the divine Mt. Fuji shall be viewed from the north". Later in 788, the altar was set to enshrine Sengen God at the present site to alleviate frequent eruption of Mt. Fuji, and the spirit of Yamato Takeru was enshrined in Otsuka yama at that time. Mt. Fuji had been worshipped from ancient time and regarded the bounds of sacred, but people started to enter the mountain for ascetic training by the influence of ancient mountain worship, 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.

The shrine was founded in 705 to enshrine tutelary deity for the present location. When Mt. Fuji had a great eruption in 807, the emperor of the time ordered to dispatch imperial envoy to this shrine to perform fire-extinguishing ritual. In the Age of Civil Wars, when Nobutora Takeda, the father of a famous warlord Shingen Takeda, battled with the Hojo Family, he pitched a camp in Mt. Arakura, a precinct of this shrine, prayed for and won the victory. He then dedicated his sword to this shrine.
Today, people not only in the vicinity but also from out of the prefecture come to worship this shrine for warding off evils, family happiness, safe delivery and child rearing. In spring, 300 plants of cherry trees bloom, and people enjoy the view with Mt. Fuji in the background.
