Oshino is a tiny village at the base of Mount Fuji. There are 7 springs which you can visit and the water is astonishgly clear: check out the largest spring and its koi. The village also has a stunning traditional Japanese garden: when we went the second time, it was snowing and deserted. There's an honesty box, where you can pay 100 yen for some fishfood for the ubiquitous koi! In summer you can buy peaches from vats of icy spring water, while you contemplate the beauty of Fuji-san. I recommend staying in a ryokan for a truly relaxing experience and a hot onsen.
