Located on a mountain top near Fujiyoshida City in Yamanashi Prefecture, the Chureito Pagoda is part of the Arakusa Sengen Shrine and was built as a peace memorial in 1963. After climbing about 400 steps, you'll have one of the most breathtaking views of Mt. Fuji. It would be hard to find a better view anywhere in the region,
