Fuji Asoyama Daijingu and the Lost Continent of Mu

Fuji Asoyama Daijingu and the Lost Continent of Mu
Shrine office at 不二阿祖山太神宮・Fuji Asoyama Daijingu

On 3/13/2024, we had the opportunity of pilgrimaging to 不二阿祖山太神宮・Fuji Asoyama Daijingu located at the foot of Mount Fuji.

The occasion was to celebrate Rein successfully receiving her 1 year spousal visa to Japan and to cleanse our relationship, both as a married couple and collaborative duo, in preparation for the coming year.

Shrine entrance

We felt that Fuji Asoyama Daijingu was just the right place for us to visit, as it was fabled amongst Japanese esotericists to be one of Japan's most mysterious shrines, known for its rich esoteric background and the mystical experiences it provides that are said to be very effective at arranging, blessing, and cleansing partnerships.

In understanding the mysteries that shroud this shrine, you first need a little primer in the history of Japanese ancient records.

In the beginning of the 8th century, the early Japanese imperial court compiled two major records of Japanese mythology-history: the 古事記・Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) and the 日本書紀・Nihon Shoki (Chronicles of Japan). These two texts have together gone on to become the foundation of Shinto spirituality for the next 1300+ years. Most Shinto Kami worshipped around Japan today come from them.

At the same time that the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki have long-maintained their canonical status, there have also been speculations amongst Shinto scholars and spiritualists that they are not necessarily accurate portrayals as "history is written by the victors". One of the discrepancies that has been pointed out was that, despite the fact that Mountain worship has always been a core aspect of Shinto, there were no mentions of Mount Fuji, considered Japan's penultimate sacred mountain, in either of the texts.

The secret behind this erasure became revealed in 1883, when, Yoshioki Miyashita, the 77th heir of the Miyashita priesthood clan based in Fuji Yoshia City, after a family meeting, decided to open up an ancient record that had been secretly passed down the Miyashita clan for hundreds of years, along with the strict instructions to never look at them as anyone who did would go blind.

While Yoshioki luckily did not lose their eyesight, it soon became evident why there was such a stern prohibition on unsealing them. The contents of this ancient record, which has come to be known as the 宮下文書・Miyashita Documents, detailed a history of Japan that had many similarities to the Kojiki or Nihonshoki, but also had some crucial differences that were no doubt deeply problematic to the status quo of Japan. The major dissimilarity was the claim that, before the formation of the current Japanese state and imperial line, there once existed an ancient empire at the base of Mount Fuji. This ancient and highly advanced civilization, which would go on to become one of the origins of Japan and its royal family, was said to have been centered around an ancient shrine that was responsible for quelling the eruptions of Mount Fuji.

In 1950, the public release of the Miyashita Documents prompted a movement to restore this lost shrine as Aso Fujiyama Daijingu, particularly to address the issue of pacifying the volcanic activity of Mount Fuji. This initial effort ended up being unsuccessful, but it also inspired the current restoration that has begun in 2009 and has been ongoing since.

According to current head priest of Aso Fujiyama Daijingu, 渡邉聖主・Seisu Watanabe, who has also led the current restoration project, this ancient Fuji Dynasty was in fact created by survivors of a lost ancient and advanced civilization, often known as Mu, that had been lost to a Great Flood that happened over 10,000 years ago. He also further claims the people of the Fuji Dynasty went on to spread rice agriculture to Mesopotamia about 6000-7000 years ago, later returned to Japan through various land and sea routes, and rejoined the main kingdom at Mount Fuji.

Fittingly, the shrine had many features that referred to Mu, including the hexagram symbol engraved on the stairway at the entrance of the shrine that greeted us.

The circle inside of the hexagram is said to represent the Rising Sun of Japan.

Living up to the hype, we found that the shrine had a very powerful Dragon energy and we saw many Dragons, both physical and energetic, on its grounds.

Rein felt this kitty who greeted us by the shrine gift shop and followed us around on our tour was an ambassador of a Dragon who lived at the shrine.

The first mystical experience we had at Aso Fujiyama Daijingu was climbing the steps to its famed 三柱鳥居・Mihashira Torii, or Three Pillared Gate.

The energy of the steps leading up to the gate are said to be different between right and left. The right side has masculine Fire energy and the left side has feminine Water energy. Because of this women should walk up the right side, to balance their Fire energy, and vice versa, men are instructed to walk up the left side, to balance their Water energy.

We had heard before to coming to the shrine, you may notice a palatable difference between left and right sides according to our gender. This turned out to be quite true! When Tada walked up the left side, he felt light and buoyant, but when he walked up the right masculine side, he felt heavy and dragged down. For Rein it was the opposite: she felt light on the right side and heavy on the left side.

At the top of the stairs, in the middle of the triangle created by the Three Pillared Gate there was a little platform you can stand on that cleanses you of the effects of EMF radiation. We used the opportunity to cut off our entanglements with any toxic online energy that we have been caught in.

When we stepped out of the Three Pillared Gate, we were greeted by a path that formed an ouroboros or an infinity symbol, which we walked on together to further rebalance our energy.

We then prayed at the main shrine, to the Kami of the Cosmos, the Kami of the Aso Fujiyama Daijingu, and all the Kami of our world, and asked for them to bless our relationship, and the people who have supported us on our journey and have followed our work.

We ended our tour of mystical experiences by standing in front of two swastika sculptures that flank the main shrine on both sides, claimed to be ancient symbols of Mu. The energy was incredible!

Tada felt a mischievous trickster energy in front of the clockwise swastika on the right of the main shrine.
Tada felt a cleansing energy in front of the counter-clockwise swastika on the left of the main shrine.

The hospitality of Aso Fujiyama Daijingu was also amazing. The little cafe next to the main shrine served us a free sample of a Makomo (Zizania Latifolia) tea, brown rice broth, and brown rice sweets. It was so delicious!

We were definitely wowed by Fuji Asoyama Daijingu and it made sense to us, why so many people, including from around the world, pilgrimage to this site.

On our walk back from the shrine we got a beautiful clear view of Mount Fuji.

It reminded us of the first section of the 日月神示・Hitsuki Shinji, or Sun Moon Revelations, a prophetic document channeled by artist and Shinto priest, Tenmei Okamaoto, starting in 1944, that many Japanese spiritualists believe tells us a lot about what is happening in the world right now:

"Behold! Fuji has driven off clouds of chaos, and all heavens are cleared.

The time has come at last when true God of kingdom of ㋹ [a mysterious symbol that appears through the Hitsuki Shinji interpreted to mean God, the Center of the Cosmos, etc.] will show His mighty power. Buddhism, Christianity, and even Islamism shall be united for this sacred mission.

There shall be no need of difficult theories nor logics, neither any hardship of livelihood. God will provide you such a happy and merry world, therefore, seek after the truth with earnestness, purifying your spirit incessantly."

Coming soon
