Though there is some sulphur smell, the views were fantastic, though I was on tour and hadn't the chance to explore further. It was a little odd to have noticed a strange congregation of birds atop one of the hills.

In October 2017 they didn't let you get too close to it, so you can only see it at a distance. Safety concerns. Others Ive seen in Japan you can get much closer to them. There were volcanologist taking measurements and inspecting.
Nice trek and while there is smell of sulphur, it is not that strong. Quite a sight which one can hold in awe though.

The steam and the bubbling waters make this place an interesting volcanic and enticing area to visit. The colours of the waters are fascinating, "bloody" red and "cobalt" blue cannot help but make you fascinated with nature and the power of the earth. A sulphuric...More
