Araya Yama Jinja

One of the three shrines for blessings of wealth.

Shrine

Araya Yama Shrine has been revered as god of the mountains and industry, which was built in 1534. At the foot of Mt. Fuji, the main hall and the rear hall stand. People tell business owners and entrepreneurs, ”If you don’t want to have trouble with money, visit this shrine.” It is a popular power spot as one of the three shrines for blessings of wealth.

The main hall stands on a green hill near Mt. Fuji’s water source. The quiet, holy ambience welcomes visitors. There are a couple of trees that connect and grow upward, the symbol of relationships and blessing of posterity. With Gojinseki, you can ask the god your questions. It is said if you lift the stone three times with your question in mind, and if you feel the difference in the weight, your matter in question will go smoothly. (With the Covid concern, it is not available as of July, 2021)

After worshiping at the main shrine, move on to the rear shrine at Mt. Fuji’s 2nd station, Heda-no-tsuji. The serene rear shrine in Fuji’s nature is accessed only by a car and the road is closed in winter. People say only those who are destined to reach will do so. It is a place that allows you to feel the power from the mountain god and Fuji’s nature.
