Fuji Sengen Shrine (kitaguchi-hongū-fuji-sengen-jinja)

The Fuji Sengen Shrine is the most important shrine dedicate to Mount Fuji and its Shinto princess, Konohanasakuya. The trailhead to climb Mount Fuji is located right behind the shrine, although most people nowadays take the Fuji Mountain Road and start their hike of Mount Fuji at the 5th station.

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
