About Asakusa Fuji Asama Shrine


During the Edo era when Fuji faith was the most popular, Mt. Fuji worship was a lifelong dream for the Edo people. However, at that time the traffic situation was bad, and "Fuji lecture" aimed at the reverence of Mt. Fuji was formed, and the Asama Shinto shrine was ordered throughout the country. On June 1st (currently July 1st) at Mount Fuji, people who can not visit Fuji visited each local Asama Shrine. Our company was established as such Mt. Fuji Wild place. Initially, it was transferred to the current location (Asakusa 5-chome), which was a moraic small hill similar to Mt. Fuji in the old days due to the life of the shogunate, after being submitted to Miyoshi-cho in the present Kuramae It is said that.

Although detailed construction date is unknown, it is estimated that it is founded in the Genroku year (1688 to 1703) according to the building note discovered from our main hall, but the torii are drawn in "Edo picture" before the Genroku year, The future task is how to interpret this neighborhood.


In the Edo era that the company was rebuilt is an era of Shinto and Buddhism studies, the shrine itself was managed by Shuzenji of Asakusa Temple as a Fuji gist at that time in the thought that the Buddha appears secularly in the form of God . After that, he left the jurisdiction of Shuzenji due to the policy of separation of Shin Buddha and Buddha of the Meiji Restoration, and since then Meiji 6, he is currently concurrently serving as Asakusa Shrine.


The shrine building built in the year of the Meiji era was burned down, leaving the main building of the museum built in the previous air raid in Tokyo. Inside the Kannon door of the main hall there is a stucco sculpture of the descent dragon which seems to be a work before and after Meiji Restoration. The current shrine was rebuilt in 1998 by the Shrine Bonenkai and other Atsushi people's efforts, and in April 2002, stone-made Tamagaki was dedicated and completed.
