It is a beautiful clear water lake where we can see the bottom of the lake which is 8 meter deep. There is also a shop beside where we can taste nice taufu and buy local products.

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 😅

Easily accessible by local bus from Kawaguchiko station. The village has 8 small ponds with crystal-clear waters. Apparently these water origins from the molten snow of Mount Fuji. There are also shops selling souvenirs and stalls selling street snack and strawberries. Trust me, the strawberries...More

From the bus parking area, we had to walk for hundreds meters to reach this place. There were some ponds where natural springs gave nice natural views. There were also a food market and some food stalls around.

Lucky to have a crystal day. In Oshino Hakkai Springs, you could find free parking lot, lots of shops for tourist. However, the ponds were too clear and fun to miss them. Fishes were visible! We spent here around 1-2 hours with lunch.

I was lucky to visit on a clear day, so I had amazing views of Mt Fuji. The ponds were crystal clear which added to the serenity of the village. There are lots of little stalls selling a variety of Japanese snacks and foods.

It is difficult to give a definitive answer with global warming and strange changes to weather and seasons. But seems like Jan is good chance for snow. The coldest months are in Jan and Feb. Regardless, you will enjoy Oshino... More
