What mountain in japan is regarded sacred in national Shinto religion?
Shintoism is an animist-Buddhist religious combo. While there are separate temples for Shinto priests and the various Buddhist sects, the national religion is a combo of the two ideologies. As such, their religion reveres nature, such that any ancient/ especially beautiful part of nature holds a kami. This is why Shinto shrines are often build out in the wilderness, so that prayers and offerings can be made to the local kami which live there. So there are many, many kami in Japan (kami means God, by the way), but the most recognizable natural feature of Japan would be mt. Fuji, with its associated shrine(s) and kami.
