Hello Japan - Japan Travel Guide


Travel Guide - Oshino-hakkai


The area around Oshino village was used to be a bottom of Lake Utsu-ko which was once connected to Lake Yamanaka-ko. Then the lake dried up and the area became the current basin-shaped valley. The eight spring-fed ponds that consists of Oshio-hakkai are the remnant of Lake Utsu-ko. The water of these ponds comes from the subsoil water of Mt. Fuji. There are thatched watermills, a museum, and restaurants around the ponds. Oshino-hakkai is now designated as a national natural treasure, as well as a part of the World Heritage site, Mt. Fuji.
