Mt. Io, Teshikaga-cho

Witness the natural spectacle of sulfur vents at Mt. Io, 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.

  • Wonderful at any time of year, it is perhaps most impressive on a cold winter's day when the wind is pushing the steam from the sulphur vents away up the valley.  more »
  • And stop the car in the parking lot of the steaming up in front. Morning weather especially in winter and low temperatures also feels powerful fumaroles. In the winter tourist parking is not taken charge.
