Yamamiya Sengen-jinga Shrine

My tour guide friends invited me to spend another great day with them.  They had a full day planned and they treated me like a queen!  What a wonderful day I had. I appreciate their kindness. 

The first thing on the agenda was visiting the Yamamiya Sengen-jinga Shrine, which is part of the Mt. Fuji World Heritage designation.  This shrine does not have a buiding for worship, but is a remote worship site. Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taishi Shrine was relocated from this original shrine.

It was a gorgeous day and we had the perfect view of Mt. Fuji from this remote worship site.

This area is the very tip of the lava flow from Mr. Fuji.  A stone mound surrounds this remote worship site to protect the sacred grounds.

There is a small information building with toilets near the entrance to the Yamamiya Sengen-jinga Shrine, with a parking lot.

I will soon post more pictures and stories about my day.  Stay tuned...
