    I found the trail to get there more interesting than the lake it's self. The smell of Sulphur is present always. Trails are well ,maintained and easy to hike. You can drive there, they do have parking but I found the hike better because you can stop and see other sites along the way. I would not recommend hiking on the road. Blind curves and in some places nowhere to step off the road.

    湯けむりがすごくて、良く、沼がみえなかったでした。
    湯けむりがすごくて、良く、沼がみえなかったでした。 地獄谷のほうから、歩いて「大湯沼」にたどり着きました。しかし、湯けむりがすごくて、沼はほぼ見えず状態でした。だからこそ、自然を感じることができたかもしれません。

Short on time - and have a car - you can drive to the Hell Valley, the footpath and here. All worth seeing. But we did a circular walk encompassing these and more - see my comments for Jigoku-Dani with our very leisurely two and a half hour walk.

From our hotel we took the long walk to the site. Paved road and then on to a walking path and walked to where the fresh mountain water mixed with the sulfur springs water. Then a little further up to a hot springs lake. Then we hit another trail to take us down to Hills canyon. Then a short distance back to our hotel. In all a 2 hour hike of beautiful and amazing scenery. Well worth the hike.

Whilst the main attraction has to be Jigokudani, it's a steady walk up over the hill to Oyunuma which is well worth the 45-60mins it will take you for the round trip from Jigokudai on well marked paths through the wooded hills. Persons with accessibility requirements would probably find the paths too challenging with uneven steps and unmade ground. Sensible footware would be an advantage if wet weather.

We found the trek over to Oyunuma very rewarding, and the views here of the everchanging mists rising over the heated waters of this mystical lake were quite enchanting. The photos just don't do it justice.

If the walk is not for you can can drive over - your JPY500 parking ticket for Jigokudani is valid at Oyunuma as well. Just ask at the Jigokudani information centre if you need directions.

A bit underwhelming but it was a good hike there anyway from Noboribetsu Onsen. Saw a tour group where the tour guide was trying to look for water hot enough to boil onsen eggs - no luck. This is a short hike from the Jigokudani area of Noboribetsu Onsen and there are maps all around indicating how to get here so no issues there.

I'd recommend to go up the tar road (leading to Lake Kuttara) until you are directly above Oyunuma. The view there is much better.

Oyunama can be reached via a short trek from the Jigokudani, the snow covered trek was a bit slippery during my visit on the first week of April. The trek was less crowded with visitors as compared to Jigokudani and the scenery was nice.

Was so tempted to walk till the natural foot bath but turned back half way due to the slippery route as I was wearing a pair of sneakers.

This is a big, hot, steamy blue lake. We went here in winter when it was snowing and raining. The walk/trek to here can be tricky in winter due to the ice and snow, so I implore you to watch your step and be careful! But if you have made it this far to oyunuma lake, go to the oyunuma foot bath to relax your feet!

>We walk from Jigokudani to the lake. Could be a bit sleapery in winter, we went a couple of days after a big snowfall, and it was quite an adventure to get there. I slipped and fell a few times in the area after Jigokudani. But totally worth it.

Recommended for travellers with a little more time to spare.
It takes about an hour on foot to reach Oyunuma from the main entrance of Hell's Valley.
It's quieter (less tourists) hence good photo opportunities. The path along the way was also scenic so you won't feel is a long walk

Fewer tourists venture here, most of those from tour groups stick around the main Jigokudani lookout. Was a nice mini-hike although the downslope here was tricky for my eldery parents as there was alot of slush. Toilet was also closed, but the view was very tranquil especially with the snow.

This hot spring is beautiful and less crowded compare to Jigokudani which known as Hell Valley. This hot spring is more like a small valley with mountain surrounded it. Walking distance from Jigokudani is around 20 to 25 minutes with staircase. Not suitable for wheel chair visitor.
