Fujizuka of Shitaya-sakamoto (Iimportant cultural properties)

Onoterusaki Shrine, 2 chome 13-14, Shitaya

 Fujizuka is a miniature mountain that an imitation man made in the image of Mt. Fuji.  Many Japanese people believed that Mt. Fuji was god or that god lived in Mt. Fuji, and so many religious groups worshipping Mt. Fuji (they are called Fujikou) were formed among people living in Edo (Old Tokyo) and many miniature "Mt. Fujis" were built around the town.
 Sakamoto Fujizuka was built in 1828. It is about 5 meters tall and about 16 meters in diameter. This precious mound is preserved on good conditions.
