Hi! This is Lena Shiratori.  I am Multi Lingual Cultural Promoter.

Today I’d like to talk about Mt. Fuji,  Sacred symbol of Japan.

Mt. Fuji is considered very auspicious; therefore, this would be a good subject for New Year.


Mt. Fuji is the Sacred symbol of Japan, and you know? It is Volcano?

Mt. Fuji is the Sacred symbol of Japan, and you know? It is Volcano?


 

Mt. Fuji was dormant Volcano and erupted in 300 year ago most recently (1707).

It is said it occurred in connection with Tokai Earthquake.

Do you know the age of Mt. Fuji? It seems 2.6millions years old!

Japan is situated along circum-pacific volcanic zone, and in this small island, there are more than 100 active volcanos.

10% of the world.


Mt. Fuji is famous for its beautiful corn shape and highest in Japan. (3776m) (12,389ft)

More precisely, Kengamine -Peak is its summit. Mt. Fuji has 9 to 13 peaks, Oshaidake, Izudake, Jojudake, Komagatake, Mushimatake, Kengamme, Hukusandake, and Kukushidake are famous 8 peaks.

Because of its majestic form and intermittent volcanic activity, Japanese have awed this mountain, and this awe transformed into religious worship and practice.


People and Nature, Shintoism and Buddhism are connected in “Mt. Fuji worship religion” and to ascend and descend, to/from peak of the Mt. Fuji symbolizes death and rebirth.

Pilgrims have drawn sacred power by ascending the crater at the summit and returning to shines at the foot of Mr. Fuji.


In the 12th century, Mt. Fuji became the center of the training for ascetic Buddhism, which include Shinto elements.

It is believed Sengen Asama Goddess (浅間大神)(Goddess of Fire) is enshrined in Mt. Fuji and Sengen Shrine was founded in Ristuyo Period (7 to 10c) to calm down eruption. Mt. Fuji has 1,300 shrines.


It is permitted to climb Mt. Fuji only in summer. How about climbing Mt. Fuji?

I am sure you can enjoy sacred atmosphere.
