Jigokudani, Noboribetsu

4.1
Enjoy the vibrant natural scenery of Jigokudani, a red stone crater valley sprinkled with steam vents and hot springs. Fittingly named “Hell’s Valley,” the area is actually a crater formed by a volcanic eruption more than 20,000 years ago. From the boardwalk above the crater you can observe the bubbling sulfurous streams, rising steam, and the vivid red cliffs, all contributing to the area’s “hellish” appearance. Explore the surroundings on the nearby undulating forest trail to discover a hot sulfur pond and dip your feet in the river that flows from it.

  • The smell of sulfur came to the Valley of Hell. Because it was snowing in February. The ground is very wet and slippery. Along the bridge you can go to Hell Valley Springs eyes. But be careful to slip.

  • Hell Valley is a place further back of the noboribetsu Onsen, noboribetsu hot spring or fumarole vents that are concentrated. Hell Valley could be as large as baseball or soccer with spectacular Alpine and enters, are maintained around the walkway and look while walking. I think that vents of hot springs and fumaroles there can't directly step high temperature on this place looks like a hell, was named "hell Valley".

  • It's not even five minutes to get to the hot Springs Hotel, the ground is all up and down, and this time because there is snow on the floor, it's more dangerous for the older children to walk, but it's good to take a picture when you're not getting around.
