Welcome to Fujinomiya!

Many Japanese people venerate this shrine as a guardian deity
 for disaster prevention, easy childbirth, navigation, fishing, agriculture, 
and weaving. 

Tokugawa Ieyasu, who established the Edo shogunate
 in the 17th century  built the present main shrine in 1604.

The shrine is also a traditional starting point of Mt.Fuji.
Ancient people washed their bodies here before climbing Mt.Fuji.

Please  enjoy the very clean water of Mt.Fuji!

This river flows vigorously.
