Chureito Pagoda

Mt. Fuji as seen from behind Chureito pagoda

Visited in November 2019

Here is a view from Chureito(忠霊塔) Pagoda in Fujiyoshida (富士吉田) , a city in Yamanashi prefecture, sitting on the foot of Mt. Fuji. The city of Yoshida is the starting point of the most popular trail to the top of Mt. Fuji. Observing Japan’s tallest mountain from its north side, Chureito pagoda is probably the most photographed pagoda in that area. The foliage around the tall red-lacquered structure is especially photogenic during spring cherry blossom season or during autumnal red leaves season.
