Owaku-dani Valley, Hakone-machi

(4.1/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • Hakone ropeway mountain-large owakudani, up to 4/14/2017 due to improvement works agency buses will. And the thing Palace-down in the Hakone tozan railway, then went by bus. Roads are jammed on weekends! Is usually 15 minutes one time thing and it takes more than read time, 4:00 PM is the last bus going down the mountain. (If you miss the walk, but going down the mountain is not) dared give up weekends, 5:00 PM, the road becomes the complete blockade, so necessary?! it big wakuya, the mountain so light is dangerous (not exaggerating) go for a runny nose while the foot is warm weather in Summit, standing very windy, buy the egg was cold. Oh! As soon as gone sold out the eggs. Fuji next to the shop was the best.
