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 good place to go if you are nearby... you will see smoke from coming out from volcanic rocks... and from here you can make your way to see the hot spring too..  more »
  • By local bus from Noboribetsu station to the valley, Nice ride. Arrived first on the huge amount of large hotels that all have their onsen and derive their right of existence to this type of "sauna". Then you can go through the sulphur fumes to a number of nice paths that cross the valley and the forests. Everything is neatly maintained from the load you paid as a user of the onsen. Was a nice experience
