Choshiike Pond
Deguchiike Pond
This is the only pond located far apart from the others, but the largest of the eight ponds. Buddhist and Shugendo practitioners climbing Mt. Fuji purified themselves with this water. They also believed that taking some of this water along on their climb would enable safe climbing.
Okamaike Pond
The smallest pond among the eight, not much bigger than a well. You can enjoy baikamo (water buttercups) swaying in the water and the blue depth of water.
Sokonashiike Pond
From the old days, it is said that if you let go of the kitchenware or vegetables you were washing, they would disappear into the whirlpool. No matter how hard you searched, you would never find them, only to often discover them later floating in the Okamaike Pond after swirling around the deep bottom for a while. Washing things in this pond would provoke a god’s fury – this was the story handed down for generations among the villagers.
Choshiike Pond
Quietly located in the grassland along the Awara River to Wakuike Pond. You can clearly see water emerging from the sand at the bottom of the pond.
Wakuike Pond
The pond facing the busiest street among the eight ponds. Rich in volume of the water discharged, the pond is beautiful for its wavering water surface and deep clear bottom of the water.
Nigoriike Pond
Adjacent to Wakuike Pond, it flows into the Awara River. Although very little, spring water emerging from the bottom has been confirmed.
Kagamiike Pond
Located on the northern side of the busy street leading to Wakuike Pond, the Kagamiike Pond discharges very little water. When the right conditions come together, you will see the breathtaking inverted Fujisan clearly reflecting on the water surface.
Shobuike Pond
Located on the eastern side of Kagamiike Pond, this is an oblong pond lush with irises. Going further inland, you will find the Hakkai Shobu Lake Park.
