Oshino Hakkai Reviews
とても素敵な場所なのですが、いかんせん観光客が多すぎます。・・・と言っている私もその観光客の一人なのですが。ぎゅうぎゅう詰めの混雑の中でも大胆に食べ歩きされている外国人の方が多く、すれ違うたびにひやひやしてしまって落ち着いて景色を楽しむことはできませんでした。 more »It is a very nice place, but there are too many tourists. I'm one of the tourists who says. There were many foreigners who were eating boldly in the crowd of crammed, and i was not able to enjoy the scenery calmly because I was tired every time I passed each other.
観光客が多いけれど、ちょっと道を外れると静かに散策でき、気持ちよかったです。近くのおみやげ屋さんで買い物をしたら、駐車料金が無料になりました。 more »There are a lot of tourists, but it was nice to be able to walk quietly when i got off the road for a moment. When I went shopping at a souvenir shop nearby, the parking fee was free.
A very beautifully place with great scenery especially on days where we could see Mount Fuji at the background. There are 8 beautiful and unique ponds holding water from Mount Fuji. I am still trying to figure how water gets into some ponds though. We will need to walk a distance to get here as vehicle is not allowed. The street goods were nice and good toilet facility was also provided. The place offers lots of photography opportunities.
Oshino Hakkai is a nice go to place after visiting the 5th station, it us nearby and boasts of eight ponds. It is located in a quaint village in the Fuji five lake region. Some believe that drinking water from its waters is healing. Lots of tourists though so drinking water from here is not advised since I saw a few tourists drinking from the ladle directly.
