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.

  • Staff of volunteers. You will come at the rate of how much overseas because there were a lot of foreigners too? I've heard, and the thing with 8 percent. We went to walk while natural foot bath. Autumn leaves was not too cold, warm, hot, little began to see because the mountain is not suffering. Foot did not know many foreign groups. Rugs were provided, but has something better?

  • Here are the Noboribetsu onsen village its origin: hot springs with sulfur and sulfite-containing minerals that an extreme and colorful mini-landscapes have delivered (Hell Valley). CCA 10 minutes walk from the ' Center ' of the hotel village. There are several paths, plankiers and vantage points, but always at a safe distance from the geysers. We were there at night, as a part of the route with small lanterns is illuminated. Too bad the landscape itself or not lit. Apart from the onsens and this landscape there is nothing going on in this village. Free access, parking (sometimes paid) within walking distance.

  • A 5 minute walk from the parking area, you will be able to get to the scenic area and width! Only a lot of restaurants in the unique hot Springs Street are not open, some deserted, followed by a small restaurant, a bit of flavor added noodles, fried noodles, roast chicken, salad. The simple taste is not very surprised bright rainbow but also fill saturated belly!
