Kanadorii (Bronze torii gate)


An approx. 10-m high entrance to a sanctuary where the faith in Mt. Fuji remains strong

Kana-dorii was built as a "gate" to invite Mt. Fuji worshippers, and as a "border" to divide earthly life from the spiritual world of Mt. Fuji. It was regarded a sacred object to make people who walk through it enter the world of belief. According to records, the torii gate was originally built in 1788, but natural hazards such as storms repeatedly broke the gate, so it was reconstructed many times. The present gate is built in 1957, and is loved as a landmark of Fujiyoshida City. The dimensions are 9.88m high, 7.9m wide (inside pillars), the width of the top beam is 13.4m, and the pillar diameter is 0.88m. The tablet on the torii reads "Fuji-san."
