Owaku-dani (Great Boiling Valley)

Travel Guide - Owaku-dani (Great Boiling Valley)

Travel GuideTravel Guide

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.

Hakone trip was an absolute disaster. I seriously question him how possibly we could have a great time together.
