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.

  • Visited by many years. All parking is without pay, staff saw Lord business. Pond, mainly souvenirs without et. and is sold as things seem to be sorted and relation to the Oshino. In Chinese? She also seems to be. In the past surfacing is a pond had sprung up as a quiet lake. Water crystal clear like glass color is due to the ingredients! Feeling well, was taken over by foreign tourists.

  • Sunny heard views of snowcapped Mount Fuji and leaves a beautiful time of year. However, was filled with crowds of Chinese tourists, despite the midweek Oshino Hakkai. Bad behavior is a wonderful view of the raised loud distracting them, with a little blanket.

  • 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.
