About Mt.Fuji Panoramic Ropeway

Mt. Fuji has been worshiped as a sacred mountain from the old days.
In the early Heian period, “Asama Shrine” was built to quell the eruption of Mt. Fuji at the foot of the mountain, a culture of belief in Mt. Fuji began.

In the Muromachi era, Fuji faith called “Fuji lecture” was born, and it seems that Mt. Fuji was climbed for many people to visit in the Edo era peak.

Do you remember the old tale “Kachigachiyama”? Once upon a time, his grandfather caught a mischievous raccoon dog in the field. My grandfather came home and asked the grandmother to make a raccoon juice and then went out to the field again. However, the raccoon dumplings cheated and slaughtered the old lady and killed the grandfather. The old man is deceived by the raccoon dumpling and eats the mother’s broth. My grandfather knew that he was crying as he caught. A rabbit who does not see it arrives and starts the victim of the old woman. I put a fire on the firewood with the raccoon dogs on fire and burned a big burn, painted spicy after burns, put on a muddy boom which sank just after inviting to the boat (rabbits are wooden boats) Drown and let the grandmother’s enemies It is a story to fulfill.

It is here in Tenjoyama that is said to be the stage of this old tale.
The exchange of scenes in which a rabbit ignites a firewood carried by a raccoon dog is famous, isn’t it?
“Doesn’t it make a clicking sound somewhere?” Said Tanuki.
“That’s the ticking bird on the ticking mountain,” said the rabbit.



It is said that the raccoon dog with a fire on its back ran down while yelling “there” on the cliff seen below the ropeway, and the raccoon dog on the mud boat sank in Lake Kawaguchiko.
Even so, the old tale “Kachikachiyama” … It’s a bit cruel story, isn’t it?
