The ownership of Mount Fuji, a symbol of Japan, is a mystery, and the country has to pay private rent every year

But almost everyone who has heard of Mount Fuji has heard of its beauty.After all, Mount Fuji has been written about by literary youths for too long.Mount Fuji is famous enough to be a symbol of Japanese spirit and culture. It is called “Shengyue” by the Japanese and a proud symbol of the Yamato nation.But Mount Fuji, as symbolic as it is, has always been a problem.The Japanese government pays a huge amount of rent to the private sector every year so that people can climb to the top of Mount Fuji and enjoy the beautiful sunrise.Does this news come as a surprise?Mount Fuji is in Japan, there is no border dispute, so who does the Japanese government pay the huge annual rent to?How could they allow Mount Fuji, the symbol of Japanese spiritual civilization, to fall into private hands?With these questions in mind, read on.Mount Fuji was not born as a symbol of Japan, and has experienced many twists and turns.Mount Fuji, an active volcano, was the nightmare of ancient Japan.Mount Fuji was a very active volcano when it was formed more than 10,000 years ago due to crustal movement near the Izu Peninsula, which created the Fuji Range.It would erupt at every turn, which, to the ancient Japanese, meant that there was no solution.Back then, if anyone had said Mount Fuji was a symbol of Japan, their heads would have shaken like rattles.Mount Fuji has erupted 18 times in recorded history, each time bringing nothing but disaster to the Japanese and leaving them with the impression of nothing but fear.When the ancients faced with their own human intervention, they thought that they could seek the help of the gods, with the help of the power of the gods, to contain the eruption of the volcano.As a result, it became the desire of the Japanese people to build a shrine on Mount Fuji.The Emperor of Japan, based on reality, had to meet the wishes of the Japanese people, and built our Asama University on Mount Fuji to suppress the eruption of the volcano.Whether by accident or for some reason, the eruption rate of Mount Fuji has been effectively curbed and it has become an active volcano that rarely erupts.People’s impression of Mount Fuji also began to change, and the beauty formed on Mount Fuji is really attracting people to visit.As a result, The Japanese people from “remote worship” to “worship” Mount Fuji.Mount Fuji lively up, with the further silence of Mount Fuji, people worship the mountain is not only to pray for it not to break out, and even began to pray for the mountain, Mount Fuji has gradually become the spiritual sustenance of the Japanese people.02 such spiritual sustenance, why will ascribe to the mystery of this matter is really a long story, although Japan’s history is not as long as China’s, but at least there are 2,000 years.Japan also went through a process from decentralization to unification.In this process, Tokugawa Ieyasu played a decisive role and the Tokugawa family became the de facto power holders in ancient Japan.Could it be that the Tokugawa family took the opportunity to claim the world as their own after becoming emperor?It’s not, but it’s close.During the Warring States period, Mount Fuji was located in The Kingdom of Jiangyuan, and this was the home of the Tokugawa family, so it became the domain of the Tokugawa family.Later, Tokugawa Ieyasu unified Japan, gained the world at the same time, but also caused new trouble.Japan’s famous mountains and okawa are mostly under the name of churches and shrines.And the Fuji Shrine was extremely popular, which meant that ordinary Japanese people would go to his family’s Mount Fuji to offer sacrifices.To some extent, this caused the dissatisfaction of other members of the nobility and the church, who took advantage of the rhythm and asked Ieyasu tokugawa to contribute Mount Fuji.Tokugawa Ieyasu although rich world, but he can not not consider the domestic “big rhythm”.After several times of thinking, Tokugawa Ieyasu came up with a good way, he just put the Fuji mountain top part of the most elite donated to the shrine, and the following part, also belongs to the Tokugawa home.The good thing about this is that no matter how exciting the top part is, without the bottom part, it’s a castle in the air, and the Tokugawa family actually controls Mount Fuji.Later, Japan after the Meiji Restoration reform, the tokugawa shogunate’s rule was overthrown, so the new rulers also took the opportunity to nationalize all the land within the territory.Mount Fuji was also taken back to Japan.However, the peak of the shallow Shinto shrine is not happy, his Fuji peak, said no, nature is quite uncomfortable.But he did not have a good way, can only silently collect evidence, ready to rely on legal means back to Fuji peak.In 1945, the Sino-Japanese War ended in Japan’s defeat and Japan came under THE supervision of the United States as the defeated nation.At the same time, the United States repealed a number of previous Japanese laws, including the “nationalization of land.”Some noble rich families in Japan, one after another, took the opportunity to return to their family land.And The Asama Shrine is clamouring for Mount Fuji.We all know what Mount Fuji means, and the Japanese authorities at that time understood the seriousness of the matter.Therefore, the road of asama Shrine fiefdom is quite difficult, but the Asama Shrine has become more and more brave.It was not until 1974 that the Shinto Shrine won the battle, but it was not until 2004 that the Shinto shrine officially acquired more than eight pieces of land on Mount Fuji.As a result, the top of Mount Fuji became private land for the Asama Shrine.Although it nominally acknowledges that the top of Mount Fuji belongs to the Asama Shrine, the two are interdependent parts of Mount Fuji, and no matter what part is missing, Mount Fuji cannot be called Mount Fuji.Although the top of the mountain is important, tourists can’t climb the ladder to the top of Fuji without a foot.As a result of negotiations, the Japanese government pays a large annual rent to the shrine, which in turn generates a steady stream of income.Asama took back the land, which meant they could receive a steady stream of revenue from the Japanese government, which was crucial to the shrine’s development.In the end, it is only a matter of money and resources. Solve this problem, then everything else is no longer a problem.Tourism to Mount Fuji continues in this pattern, and it is unlikely that there will be any major changes if there are no major events.After all, it is now a more reasonably distributed and interdependent relationship.On the other hand, even the annual rent that the Japanese government pays for Asama is a drop in the bucket of the value of The mountain itself.And no matter how they divide the money, it belongs to the meat rotting in the pot, left hand over right hand, we eat melon crowd also right to be a lively look.For more exciting content, follow Li’s hour hand
