Situated on the southwestern slopes of Mount Fuji, Fujinomiya is a charming town that once served as the gateway to Fuji’s snow-capped summit. It’s home to one of Japan’s most stunning waterfalls, as well as picturesque lakes and an African-inspired safari park.
Established more than 1,000 years ago for spiritual protection against volcanic eruptions, Fujisan Sengen Shrine was traditionally the starting point for climbing Mount Fuji. Admire the sengen-zukuri architectural style of its two-storey gate tower and wander around the Heritage-listed Wakutama-ike pond, then follow the Sakuranobaba pathway where the shrine’s annual horseback archery contest takes place.
Witness one of Japan’s most beautiful waterfalls at the Shiraito Falls, where volcanic spring waters tumble over a cliff in streams that resemble threads of silk. It’s accessed along a short trail that also offers superb views of the Otodome Falls and is a popular stop on day trips to the Fuji Five Lakes.
For some of the most photogenic views of Mount Fuji and its snow-capped reflection, drive to Lake Tanuki. It forms part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, with scenic walking trails and boat cruises for soaking up its natural beauty.
Want to spot big game African wildlife with Mount Fuji as your backdrop? Spend a day exploring the Fuji Safari Park, which lies on the southern slopes of the mountain. Embark on a safari through replicated natural habitats to spot elephants, giraffes and lions, then go on a night safari for a glimpse of the animals’ nocturnal behaviour.
Fujinomiya is around two hours by train from Tokyo, combining a ride on the Tokaido Shinkansen with a Fujinomiya-bound local train. Buses travel throughout Fujinomiya and connect most of its attractions.
