“Fuji faith” which is the subject of faith in Mt. Fuji was mainly spread in the Edo period.
For those who can not climb Mt. Fuji for various reasons, these people made “Miniature Fuji” called “Fuji-duka”.
It is said that there is a similar benefit to climbing real Mt. Fuji when climbing to “Fuji-duka”.

There is “fuji-duka”(Miniature Fuji) in “Teppou-zu Inari shrine” in about 15 minutes walking from the Tsukiji market.

Teppou-zu Inari shrine
Torii of “Teppou-zu Inari Shrine”.
“Teppou-zu Inari Shrine” is the beginning of the Heian period (814), the residents of this area worshiped the god from the bad habits.
As there was “port” in the seat of the sanctuary, as landfill was proceeding, it was transited several times.


Two stone guardian who have charming faces welcome you.


First of all, let’s visit the main hall.


Lifting stone.
An old man seemed to compare the power with these lifting stones.


To “Fuji duka(Miniature Fuji)” where the “Fuji-Sengen Shrine” is enshrined.
Unfortunately the signboard says “Do not climb Mt. Fuji because it is dangerous”.
Whatever I say instead, you can go round the circumference.


Stone monuments are wonderful.


In the past, it may have been able to “see the inside of the womb”.


A lot of foxes watched over Fuji-duka.

2. It is not like a Japanese temple!? Tsukiji Honganji Temple

Tsukiji-Honganji-Temple
After walking for 15 minutes from “Teppou-zu Inari shrine” you will reach “Tsukiji Honganji Temple”.

Although it is a temple of the Shinran Shin Buddha created by Shinran Shonin, it looks like a mosque.
I found out that it was reconstructed by architect historiographers after the Great Kanto Earthquake.
The outside looks like an ancient Buddhist architecture in India, but the interior is a traditional Shin Buddhist temple.

“Buddhism” has arrived in Japan from India through China.
So, He may have respected the birthplace and made it look like it.

There is a Tsukiji outer market in front of Tsukiji Honganji-Tenple.

“Tsukiji Market”, in particular “In-Place” is “Business Place where food professionals exchange ingredients”.
“Tsukiji market” is not a “shop for general shoppers” or “sightseeing spots”.
For those who want to see the center of food culture in Japan, they seem to have created rules.
