Things to Do
Chureito Pagoda (Arakurayama Sengen Park)2017.06.15
A Famous Mount Fuji Photo Spot
This place has become famous among foreign visitors because you can take a photo of Mt. Fuji with cherry blossoms and a five-storied pagoda in the foreground. Free Wi-fi is available in the park so you can immediately post your photos to SNS.
Also recommended in autumn
If you look down from the top of the hill, you can see the grounds colored pink by cherry trees in spring, and red by maples in autumn. From here you can get the whole picture of Fujiyoshida City.
Good looking shrine
Though this park is most famous for its view and pagoda, it also has an attractive torii gate and shrine.
368 stairs which trouble visitors
Though there is a road that leads to the hill top (sometimes closed), brave visitors are tempted to climb up the 368 stairs. You had better get used to stairs if you want to get a good view.
