Jigokudani, Noboribetsu

4.0
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.

  • A place where people must go all their lives! Gratitude we went to this place, and sent a good weather, the only bad thing is ... People are really, really too much, very noisy ... We really want to be quiet and appreciate nature ...

  • Hokkaido is famous here. Individual excursions, etc. have visited many times. Snow until stopped, could go. Snow is the best.

  • A valley with easy routes with exciting volcanic steam outlets, ways only partly in the winter open. But also then worth seeing, especially since only a few 100 meters from the shopping street away. Of course, as usual in Japan, very well visited. Sometimes, the Japanese nerves with their Selfie craze, because it barely ahead by photographing groups. But they expect that the air is violently muffelt of sulphur.
