Owaku-dani Valley, Hakone-machi
(4.1/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • It stinks in the true sense of the world, but it's different. The black eggs are a fun treat, but they come in a pack of 5 so if you're a couple you might need to share with some stranger. 
  • Stunning visit! View of crater/rocks. Will be quite an amazing sight on a clear day. I went on a cloudy/rainy day hence the view was rather poor, but the crater was still visible when the fog cleared ...  more »
  • It came after a long time. Go away making a black egg previously through the promenade has been eating the black egg, but in the aftermath of the eruption of last year's promenade was off-limits. Black egg can buy at kiosks near the ropeway station. Only to the line about 30 minutes (laughs)
