Iouzan, Teshikaga-cho

Witness the natural spectacle of sulfur vents at Iouzan, an active volcano releasing sulfuric gases that often cause the surrounding landscape to turn yellow. A short 2.5 km (1.55 mi) scenic walk from the nearby town or from the onsite parking lot brings you right to the steaming vents and the rocky, barren landscape. The parking lot's fee includes access to the Lake Mashu caldera viewpoint. Plan a Teshikaga-cho trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

    It is surprising and interesting. Steam rising from vents. I think not quite so visible in the near. Have fun, I was killing time. At the adjacent rest house had five 400 Yen poached egg. Piping hot, delicious lunch instead.

Where to stay in Teshikaga-cho

The town of Teshikaga-cho itself has a good array of hotels, traditional ryokan, and a couple of more budget-friendly hostels. The more luxurious among them have onsite onsens and restaurants, and with proximity to the main train line, the area offers convenience for travelers just arriving or soon to leave. But the surrounding rural spots have just as much in terms of accommodations, particularly close to the lakes, with clusters of ryokans, some campgrounds, and luxury resorts.
