Oshino Hakkai spring ponds

*Approx. 80-minute walking tour

- Rain and meltwater that fall on Mount Fuji filter through layers of lava for over 20 years, resulting in very clear spring water and gushing out Oshino Hakkai spring ponds.

Those who worshipped Mt. Fuji stopped by the ponds and purified their mind as well as their body with the sacred spring water before the pilgrimage to Mt. Fuji

- Along with the lovely landscape you could enjoy the great view of Mt. Fuji during a walk.

The highlight of the Oshino Hakkai walk is a visit to “Deguchi pond” which is away from the center of Oshino Hakkai. In contrast to the bustling atmosphere around the central area, the pond would welcome you with peaceful and serene atmosphere.

The restaurant serves Udon (Wheat noodles) and homemade Soba (Buckwheat noodles)

In this tour, we will visit three of the most popular Mt. Fuji viewing spots. My favorite part of this tour is when I take you to Arakurayama Sengen Park where we can have the most beautiful view of Mt. Fuji with five-story pagoda. I think this is the best place for Mt. Fuji viewing, but it is located in a little bit complicated place. So, I can take you here in the most efficient way.
