Oshino Hakkai are a set of eight sacred ponds. The ponds are filled with water filtered through the lava rock of Mount Fuji for over 70 years before appearing here. Its not like a park as it is an open village. You can walk to...More

We go there end of March & see the whole place covered in snow. Can't manage to cover the whole place due to snow covered road. Warm Fish Tofu on a cold day is a plus. Lots of Japanese pickles to bring back home 😅
