Owaku-dani Valley, Hakone-machi

(4.1/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Hakone-machi family vacation planner to visit Owaku-dani Valley on your trip to Hakone-machi, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
