Arakura Sengen Shrine is one of the foremost scenic destinations of Fujiyoshida City. Climb the 397-step staircase located near the main shrine building and you’ll arrive to the chureido (“war dead memorial”) five-storey pagoda. The area around the pagoda has recently become incredibly popular with overseas tourists as a spot where you can photograph a pagoda tower together with Mount Fuji. There are also many flowering cherry trees here, turning it into a truly gorgeous landscape come spring.
Arakura 3353, Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi
When the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the Sakura Matsuri is held, and the trees are illuminated at night by the warm glow of paper lanterns.
