The place is called 'hell valley' because of its intensive volcanic activity. As you travel up by cable car, you can get stunning views of the valley below. The yellow colour is due to the sulfur and the smell of sulfur dioxide is very strong....More

This place was very pretty ! You could walk up very close to the volcanos and see things by the telescope (100 ¥). There is a museum about the volcanos which is great and there is food as well.

The view from the top, the ride in cablecar, the black eggs. A nice stop while in Hakone. Black eggs taste like any boiled eggs. The color is impressive. Funny and cheap lunch/snack.

I have visited several volcanic areas over the year. This was the first one which had both obvious volcanic and industrial activity. In viewing it I was reminded of classic hellfire and brimstone. While the fire was present only by smoke, the yellow and green...More
