    Hot spring town

    Went as a day trip from Sapporo. Few hiking trails that are pretty peaceful compared to the crowded entrance areas. Nice footbath hot spring to relax the tired feet along the path.

    Something out of a movie

    Great place to visit if your in the area. The smell of Sulfur over there is quite something, try to wear non slip footwear as some of the path is quite slippery due to the ice.

Additional Information

Introduction

Hell Valley is the main source of Noboribetsu's hot spring waters and also an iconic hot spring in Hokkaido. The so-called "Hell Valley" is, in fact, a remnant of a crater, pervaded all year long by volcanic gas spewing from the surface of the gray and yellow rocks. The surrounding air is filled with a strong smell of sulfur, and the place is thought to resemble a scene of hell. The main attraction is the eerie volcanic valley, the center of which can be accessed by a walkway specially built for tourists.
