Oshino Hakkai – The 8 Springs of Oshino

Sacred Ponds Borne from Mt. Fuji’s Melted Snow

3.86 14

Last update :

Oshino Hakkai is the collective name for Mt. Fuji’s 8 natural ponds, Deguchi-ike, Obon-ike, Sokonashi-ike, Choshi-ike, Waku-ike, Nigori-ike, Kagami-ike and Shobu-ike. Once a former lake, the area has dried up and formed the 8 spring-sourced ponds that remain today.
The melted snow from Mt. Fuji can spend almost 20 years filtering through the underground volcanic rock, resulting in waters that are extremely clear.
Coupled with the beauty of Mt. Fuji and its lakes, the astonishing beauty of this place has garnered more and more attention.

Highlights

  • Oshino Hakkai is a component part of Mt. Fuji as a world heritage site. It has also been registered as a National Natural Monument and as one of the Selected 100 Exquisite and Well-Conserved Waters.
  • You cannot drink the pond water directly, but there are designated areas to taste or fill up a water bottle for free.
  • Picture-perfect backdrop of clear waters and Mt. Fuji. There are plenty of vantage spots nearby to view the mountain lakes and Mt. Fuji.

    水池裡的水非常乾淨,喝起來也甘甜好喝,小商店也很好逛。

  • 老媽亭

    路上的日式建築景色很鄉村純樸,池水乾淨透徹,唯獨遊客太多太吵不協調。

  • Ann Chan

    日本富士山溶雪後經過的一段時間再從地底下湧出來的泉水,水質清涼透徹,喝一口嘴巴會很甘純,旁邊還有賣哇沙米豆腐和烤草餅,團體遊客很多。

  • Maggie Wang

    裡面賣的東西很好吃,邊吃邊欣賞湧泉美景以及富士山的美麗。

  • Wo Plum99

    團體遊客太多,
    吵雜喧嘩噪音,
    失去旅遊興致!

  • LOVE曉婷

    陸客團大嬸超多買東西大聲嚷嚷好像菜市場,大叔們就聚在一起邊走邊抽煙。

  • 張立溪

    「八海」原本以為很大要走很久,結果是八個小池塘,導遊在介紹時我差點笑出聲🤭

  • Ronald2000

    從這邊可以看得到富士山,就是人太多了,遊客素質也不好。

  • 李宗漢

    總共只有八個水池一下就看完了,觀光遊客很多全都擠到賣店去,有點浪費時間。

  • SK.Chen

    空氣清新,水池清澈乾淨能見度很深,生活環境很好的地區,長期居住在這邊應該也會成為百歲人瑞🤭
