Owaku-dani Valley, Hakone-machi

4.0
#3 of 90 in Things to do in Hakone-machi
Formed by an ancient eruption, Owaku-dani Valley features active steam vents and hot water pools. From the local ropeway stop, you can navigate your way down to the active volcanic area and marvel at stream rising from many subterranean openings. Don't miss an opportunity to try a fresh onsen tama--these soft-boiled eggs, cooked by the sulphur waters, feature distinctive blackened shells. Inquire about the area's ropeway service status before you visit, as increased volcanic activity can lead to temporary closures.

    Speaking of Hakone, but large ohwakudani black are handed down and eat 1 egg, 7 years and longevity. However, recently at road to the parking lot of traffic jams and dozens of minutes wait in traffic and no parking lot. Also, walking trails climb to the top is closed, black egg, can't buy at the kiosk near the parking lot only. Still, speaking of Hakone great many cases likely owakudani, fog, prospects are poor. Be able, should it?
