Oshino Hakkai, Oshino-mura

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.

  • Eight lakes located here are filled with waters from the Fuji-San. It is interesting to walk along them, admire them on the background of Fuji-San.

  • I went to five years Buri. Five years ago, this was the Hakkai-, and shop also sells, I think Chinese people more than the people of there are many things, I was surprised. That it unfortunately is, clean water was thrown a lot of coins. Beauty of the water does not change from this to everyone and following the rules, and not willing to enjoy.

  • 是一个比较小而精致的村落,有日式木屋、八个较小的池塘,说是由富士山融化的雪水经流经地层过滤而成的八个清澈的淡泉水,不过感觉无甚稀奇,水质确实很清,能看到鱼儿在里面嬉戏。不过在里面吃的小吃味道挺好,接地气的日式美食,给斑马导游推荐点赞。

  • It has picturesque view of Fuji from it's point. It's fascinating the ponds is interconnected to the lakes surrounding Mt. Fuji & extends all the one up to the tip of Mt. Fuji itself. It's a nice get away from the cityscape and has a relaxing vibe set in a small village. Just be prepared for a lot of tourists.
  • Multiple water wells and ponds fed from spring water originating from Mt. Fuji. The water is crystal clear in the shallower ponds, while the deeper ones are something between aquamarine and ultramarine. Expect lots of fish in and lots of tourists around the water. Very nice setting with traditional houses and thatched roofs. Tranquil place if you go early morning, but quickly fills with hordes of tourists as the pond area is free to enter. The biggest house is a shopping area and is built right in the middle of the largest pond. Paid parking spaces (official and private ones) in the vicinity, no free parking available. You can't park the car by the pond area and trying to drive close means getting stuck in the narrow roads surrounded by angry pedestrians. Better park a bit further outside and walk the rest.
  • There is a great view of mt. Fuji from the village and they sell snack at their local convinience shop. The view of the lake is also very beautiful
  • I went there my family and really enjoyed the beautiful Oshino Hakkai eight nature ponds within the five lake Mt. Fuji Japan area. The ponds are refreshing to look at and the scenery is very pleasing to the eyes. Enjoy some fresh spring water.
  • Have to try "Grilled Matcha Mochi" and "Daifuku" here.
