The Fuji worship, which gathered a large number of worships during the Edo period, is now close to the relics of the past. There aren't many Mt. Fuji mounds that were once built here and there in Edo, and even if they do, no one climbs them because of their faith. If you want to climb Mt. Fuji, it is common to go to the real Mt. Fuji.
Then, the Sengen Shrine, which is a place of worship for Fuji, is no longer a place of worship, and it remains as a shrine whose deity is Konohanasakuya Hime. Konohanasakuya- hime is supposed to be the mountain god of Fuji, so the Fuji worship remains in a slightly different form.
After visiting Konohanasakuya-hime, who is said to have the benefits of family peace and childbirth, I came to the big stage next to the precincts. This shrine has a stage that approaches the Tama River and has a good view.
When I arrived at the stage, it was empty, but there was someone else on the stage. A woman with an umbrella was standing by the fence, looking intently in the direction of Musashi-Kosugi. Like me, she might have been overwhelmed by the sight of the towering apartment buildings in the distance.
