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.

  • Since driving to endure wild eight sea is a little inconvenient, because people and want to park, but the scenery is very good, there is no special place to go, this is a right choice. There are Chinese-speaking shops in the store, and they are actually in the care of China's tourists.

  • Visited on weekend mornings, but on the streets and around the pond was filled with people. Like foreigners and more than 8 percent, Japan Japanese I didn't hear too much. I thought about Hakkai spring water is clear and clean, and then I saw a big white Fuji, but see trouble coming from foreign countries. Want even in a quiet tourist destination, like the old.

  • This is really a beautiful little place, but there are too many people, the Chinese team of guests waves, walking can not walk, full of noisy rushing, hope to restore silence. will be more light quality.

  • A world heritage site that takes you back into time. The village is so quaint and charming. Oshino Hakkai is reknowned for its 8 ponds with crystal clear water. You can drink directly from the tap (which is natural spring water ) from any of the nicely decorated water source. Good for a stroll around the village and great spot for taking scenic photos, with mt Fuji in the background. Go early in the morning if you want to capture the reflection of Mt Fuji in the pond. The local snacks are delicious too. Do not miss this village if you are in the area.
  • this was the 2nd stop of our Mt Fuji tour. very charming little place with lots of scenic views (and tourists too!) there are several eateries, a small shopping department and various home owned shops. the beauty and peacefulness of the place is defined by the many ponds, wildlife and greenery. however, it was a rather busy day and was full of tourists. we bought some delicious fruits from 1 of the vendors there.
  • + + + Nice views of Mt. Fuji. Great natural spring ponds, you can fill up water bottles and drink as much as you want. Great noodle restaurant, lots of snack food stalls also. - - - It becomes quite crowded and some tourists are not respectful This used to be one of my favourite places, but it is becoming over-run by tourists (tour bus tourists). However, if you can tolerate the impolite jostling it's still a beautiful place.
  • A scenic spot in which people take lots of photos. It is located near Mount Fuji. It has traditional atmosphere, with beautiful natural scenery in all seasons. Be extra cautious if you bring young children, as parts of the area are waters. There are lots of food vendors selling various snacks and foods. Please do not litter. 😊 Since some areas in this place are very crowded, be extra careful and considerate if you use nano-pod (selfie stick).
  • Beautiful clear water that you see water plants under the water. It's a World Heritage site that preserves nature nicely. Rows of local products with locals introduce their year round products. A nice back drop of Fuji san gives this place a magical touch.
