This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

8 springs of oshino


Near the base of Mt. Fuji is a village called Oshino mura (Minamitsuru district, Yamanashi Prefecture) where you can find the most beautiful natural ponds formed hundreds of years ago by spring water from Mt. Fuji.
(quaint and rustic, with a great view of Mt. Fuji)

The place where the ponds are located is called Oshinohakkai, which literally translates to "eight springs of Oshino".
(pond with large golden kois)

The waters of the spring are unbelievably clear. You can see all the way to the bottom. A varied collection of underwater plants and colorful fishes (the large kois are amazing) inhabit the ponds.

You can take a sip of the fresh spring water if you fancy it.

It amazing how the place is preserved. Knowing the Japanese, the springs will still be in their pristine state decades from now.

yan naman ang gusto ko sa mga japanese, they preserve their heritage well. i really won't be surprised if these sites would still be in good conditions a generation or maybe a century from now.
