Area:Mt. Fuji/Fuji Five Lakes

Mt. Fuji World Cultural Heritage Site Asset (Registered in June 2013)
Yoshida Tainai (lava tree mold) were formed at the east end of a lava flow at the time of Mt. Fuji's eruption in 937 more than 1,000 years ago. Several trees overlapped each other and formed complicated tree molds, hence the allegorical image of being inside the woman womb, which led to the Tainai (womb) religion. The Yoshida Tainai became an object of worship for the disciplinants who visited Mt. Fuji, and the worshippers and mentors of Fuji-ko (Mt. Fuji religion) have protected them for a long time. The Yoshida Tainai festival is still now held once a year. Yoshida Tainai Jukei-gun, a group of more than 60 tree molds existing around Yoshida Tainai, is a nationally designated Natural Monument.
*The area inside the Yoshida Tainai is not open to the public.
