“make sure to try the black eggs”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

the specialty of this owakudani volcano are the eggs boiled in local water, they seem like smoked eggs. Worth to buy a few at local gift shop and try them yourself on the spot.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

It was too tiring to go up the hill but i loved the walk. Although there is not much to see but the burning sulfur and the black eggs.

“Don't miss this one”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The whole black egg thing was fascinating. We spent a good bit of time watching them move through the cooking process. Be sure to catch the “shipments” down to the bottom off the hill via ropeway. It was fun to eat the eggs with the locals at the tables provided.

“Funny!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

The short visit could be a little disappointing if compared with other geothermal areas in the world like Yellowstone or Pozzuoli. But the ropeway, the walk and the black eggs traditional eating add some funny aspects to this site. There's even a yellow ice cream made of boiled eggs. Eggs travel on their own little ropeway.
