Jigokudani, Noboribetsu

(4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Noboribetsu trip itinerary builder makes visiting Jigokudani and other Noboribetsu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Jigokudani is the source of much of the onsen water in Noboribetsu. Right when we stepped out of the car, it smelled strongly of sulfur due to the volcanic activity but you get used to it quickly....  more »
  • The view relieved my stress when I went there. You wont get tired of it. A must-see place in Hokkaido. Just an hour bus away from the airport.  more »
