Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 700 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.

  • Really like hell and out smoke from the mountain and sulfur smell again or so is like another world. It is better to go during the day, MO. King is recommended in an adventurous mood.

  • 值得游览的一处景点。适合喜欢户外活动的驴友。天然形成的岩石很独特。大片森林腹地可做徒步路线。需驾车抵达,有部分山路,可登高看全景。 
  • Even where Springs is making travel tour under the name of "hell". Well spout out "sulfur" as the centerpiece of noboribetsu hot spring, Loris is worthy of admiration.
