Owaku-dani (Great Boiling Valley)

Owaku-dani (Great Boiling Valley)


Owaku-dani lies in the 3,000-year-old ancient crater of Mt. Kamiyama. The entire gorge reeks of sulfurous fumes. Clouds of steam rise from crevasses, hot springs bubble out, and in some cases, hot water has been tapped and piped to distant places.
You can buy black-colored eggs boiled in the hot sulphur springs here. It is believed that eating the eggs prolongs your life.

can we talk about hakone just accepting shinkai as is rather than telling him to get over his passing quirks
  @makishimakun - 2014-10-23
@jinpachichan probably.... uses a stamp from hakone to prove it even more and probably uses "makichan" when referring 2 him tbh
