    The gist of pilgrimage is not only visiting the place,

    That’s why Hokusai’s Ukiyo-e says Shojin-tozan.
    Fuji-mountain is nothing to do with Buddhism though,
    just walk and climb there has the value as a Buddhist’s practice.
    ( Remember the Tibetan pilgrims kneel and crawl instead of
    walk, as it is a heavier, more tasking practice)
    My Yoshizen’s blog has been analyzing this matter.

    ——– Google “yoshizen buddha figure” )
