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.

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.

Fuji Yamaguchi, and the planting city, which is considered as the day of festival, will be held on the last Saturday and Sunday of May and June.

It is a phrase meaning that I dropped the tongue made of a reddish tree attached to a barley straw in a crowd, until the early Showa period where the bustle of the pilgrims is known, it is distributed as a plant of Uki city in the prefecture However, disappeared after the war.
This time, it was carried to reproduce the wheat straw serve as the defense of Asakusa Fuji Asama Shrine for the purpose of maintaining this lost customs / culture and succeeding it to future generations. It is distributed between Ueki City in May and January 3 from New Year's Day.
