Yoshida Ascending Route is one of the essential components in demonstrating the outstanding universal value of Mt. Fuji as an “object of worship.” Yoshida Ascending Route is a mountain trail up to the summit on the east side of Mt. Fuji, from the starting point at Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine, located at the northern foot of Mt. Fuji. The 2nd station of Yoshida Ascending Route (1,720m above sea level) is a place where, according to legend, an idol of worship with the inscribed year in the late 12th century was dedicated, and supposedly a site for ascetic practices was formed in the 13th to 14th century at the latest. Even now, a lot of climbers use this route. The tradition of the main mountain trail for worshippers of the Mr. Fuji religion has been handed down from person to person.
