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.

  • Visit for a long time, but as usual the water clarity is great, it is truly spring water of Mt. Fuji. Was surprised at how many foreigners didn't too long ago, a world heritage site impact clearly felt.

  • Springing up everywhere in the water, there is very simple, we recommend photography is. So I ate Soba is delicious water were really good. Crystal clear air of the seasons is better think it looks good, but 5 months of the season of the fresh green clean. Parking was close and put the money in a box yourself system.

  • GW2 day (Sunday) 14:00 when I was visiting. Parking lot and often the price is 300 yen. The local... Artificially made Japan's countryside and the Fuji volcano derived from natural spring water that should be mainly artificial ponds are made. Water 透kitoori is very beautiful. However, the watermill and Japan homes have made it around, here you will enjoy a natural, not like the theme park where it seems. You will also need that would be great benefit from the globalization of tourism destinations and in tourism benefits the local. I do not even see that I got to see, is going to determine. Again my name is natural spring water is very clean and is a welcome antidote.

  • At first I was a bit disappointed and surprised after arriving at this place when I realized the shear number of visitors at this place. But walking deeper into the park and paying a small fee to go to the paying part of the park I realized it is a really relaxing place. The water they keep the fish in are surprisingly crystal clear and ice cold. The landscape was well kepted and breathtaking.
  • 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.
  • The place is very beautiful with the ponds, the antique houses and the atmosphere here. You can also see Mt. Fuji from here in a clear day. Everything here will make you in love with the place
  • Beautiful small town with several small ponds and shops. Good place to take photos along with traditional Japanese buildings. Sometimes can be crowded.
  • There are beautiful 8 ponds here. But It's crowded by chinese since Mt. Fuji has been registered as a World Heritage Site. I think, It was Five Stars here when it was not crowded.
