Once a sacred cleansing site for those attempting to conquer Mt. Fuji, Oshino Hakkai features a sprawling set of eight ponds fed by snow melting from the nearby mountain. Meander your way by the water's edge, enjoying the occasional glimpse of colorful fish and plant life dwelling in the depths. Gaining popularity in recent years, the area has developed to offer restaurants, souvenir shops, and street food vendors tempting visitors with delicious osenbei rice crackers. Near the largest pond, you can explore an open-air museum, home to a traditional thatch-roof farmhouse and rare pieces of samurai armor.

Or where is the parking lot for the Oshino Hakkai is quite a famous tourist destination, but did not understand well. Paid parking (300 yen) by neighborhood landlords has an opening in it was all over the place.... The water is very clean.

  • One of the more peculiar tourist destinations as rather than being a park to enter it is a small village where the ponds are located. We drove and parked in a cheap place (300Y) and walked to the start of the ponds. They are quite nice to see and there are shops where you can buy the Fuji water for yourself
  • We went there around 4pm which is just an hour before their closing hour. But it was still quite lively with a few big groups of tourist mainly Asian. We parked at a car park just next to it. It is free parking. An hour is enough to cover this place. The grilled fish, 草饼 and tofu with miso paste were delicious. We saw a stall selling local fruits. One of their fruits is white strawberries. The other fruits look fresh and juicy. We bought some strawberries which were fresh, juicy and sweet. The water in the ponds were very clear with fishes. Apparently The grilled fished came from the clear pond just infront of the stall.
  • Be prepared, this place is super-touristy! But if offers a lot of great views on Mount Fuji with old houses in front, or even a typical river+sakura+Fuji view all at once! Fantastic when the timing is right.
  • It's great village. Kinda give a you an idea what a village in Japan look like. It's accessible with public bus, so there were many people came to this place. A lot of stores that sell small snacks, so it was great while we're looking around and enjoying their snacks. It also has this pond, I'm sure it's significant, but too bad I don't read Japanese(maybe there's English, but I ran out of time and need to catch the bus), so I'm not sure what the significance is.
  • A beautiful place with traditional Japanese style house. But there are too many tourist making the place noisy.
