History

Mount Fuji is an attractive volcanic cone and a frequent subject of Japanese art. Among the most renowned works are Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji and his One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji. The mountain is mentioned in Japanese literature throughout the ages and is the subject of many poems.

It is thought that the first ascent was in 663 by an anonymous monk. The summit has been thought of as sacred since ancient times and was forbidden to women until the Meiji Era. Ancient samurai used the base of the mountain as a remote training area, near the present day town of Gotemba. The shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo held yabusame in the area in the early Kamakura period.
Coordinates:

35°21′28.8″N = 35+21+28+8 = 92 = 11
138°43′51.6″E = 138+43+51+6 = 238 = 13

35°21′28.8″N 138°43′51.6″E = 238+92 = 330 = 33 = HM 6



Mount Fuji Myths and Legends

Quote:
Mt. Fuji has been the home to many things. It has been known as the home of a fire god, the Shinto goddess of flowing trees, and since Buddhist times the dwelling of Dainichi Nyorai, who was the Buddha of All-Illuminating Wisdom. One of the deities of Mt. Fuji is known as Sengen, the goddess of Fuji. She is also known as Ko-no-hana-saku-ya-hime (“Radiant-blooming-as-the-flowers-of-the-trees”) On the summit of Mt. Fuji is her temple. She was said to in ancient times sit on a cloud while her invisible servants threw in any pilgrims who were not pure of heart. Another deity of Fuji was the Luminous Maiden. She was said to have led a certain emperor to his doom. He is still worshipped at the small shrine marking where he vanished. A third and final deity that is known is O-ana-mochi or “possessor of the great hole” (crater).

Mount Fuji, Highest Mountain of Japan

Mount Fuji is believed to possess a female spirit HM 6 and is the highest mountain in Japan. There is a myth recounting a story of the measurement of Mount Fuji and Mount Haku by the Buddha Amida. It is said that Haku, a male mountain, was taller than Fuji, however Mount Fuji was so enraged by this measurement that she destroyed the top of Haku. This created the eight peaks of Mount Haku and thus Mount Fuji became the tallest of the Japanese mountains.
