The Hidden Lake of Mount Fuji

 

Located at the foot of Mount Fuji, Oshino Hakkai is a small village very popular with Japanese people. Developed to highlight local crafts, this thatched village is actually the 6th lake in the region!

 

 

Listed as a World Heritage Site since 2013 for its unique architecture , this small town is now mainly dedicated to local crafts .

Although the village is still home to 9,200 inhabitants , it is its center laid out in the Edo era that attracts all eyes. And every day, many visitors come to stroll through its shopping streets where Japanese pastries and traditional restaurants mingle with souvenir stalls and silk shops .

In order to learn a little more about the history of the region, a museum has even been opened in the heart of the village .

 

From how thatched roofs were made to how vegetables were grown, the Hannoki Bayashi Shiryokan Museum is a good way to learn about the way of life of the Japanese who lived at the foot of Mount Fuji two centuries ago.
