    DAIFUZAN YOMEI ZENJI

    by cheesecake17 Written May 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Daifuzan Yomei Zenji was established in 756 by Gyoki and was affiliated with the Shingon sect of Buddhism for a long time. Its original location was on a hill north of its present site.

    In 1472 the temple was converted to Sotoshu, a Zen sect of Buddhism, and relocated to its present site, named YOMEI ZENJI.

    At its height, Yomei Zenji was a large temple with more than 60 affiliated branch temples under the hegemony of Lord Imagawa .We can imagine those prosperous days by the sealed certificates issued by Taiko Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, which are preserved in this temple.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    The park consisting of 74 square meters of forest at the base of Mt Fuji. Opened in 1980, Fuji Safari Park was the first safari-style attraction of its type in Japan.

    The Park is divided into two different sections -
    the safari zone and
    the free-contact zone.

    In the safari zone, different types of wild animals roam around freely. A 4.5km driving tour through the zone takes about 50 minutes, and allows you to see them really up close.

    You can use your own car on the tour, which lends to a very unique and different experience . The safari park also gives the driving tour in special, animal-shaped buses.with an additional fee..

    In the free-contact zone, you find more personal interactions with animals, such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

    Fun activities are also available throughout the year, such as riding miniature horses, watching animal shows.

    One of Fuji Safari Park's most unique activities is the "Night Safari", where visitors are invited to stay at the park into the evening, and given night-vision equipment in order to be able to observe the animals in their nocturnal living environment. (If Interested should contact Fuji Safari Park for exact tour details.)

    What else is there to do?

    Kuri on top of The Fooj

    When one goes to Fuji one should climb Mt Fuji. I did it and although I crawled the last few metres as I was suffering form altitiude sickness it was worth it in order to eat the 900 yen noodles that I bought at the top.

    At 2,500m it can get pretty chilly.

    There's a souvenir shop and a great view of the lakes.
