My only gripe is that the trials to the hot springs seemed to be closed due to winter. -- can't understand why. We were well above freezing the day I visited. we tried the black eggs. We found them yummy, but they many not be for everyone. MY kids were very intrigued with the sulphur pits.

Nothing beats taking pictures by an active volcano. It also has a *great* view of Fuji - though in the Winter, it really depends on luck/timing if you'll see it with clear skies.

this is a very impressive travel spot. please go there if you travel tokyo. it would take around 80 mins. one thing was not too good is that we cannot see the Fuji mount due to the foggy weather.

The valley can be assess from owakudani ropeway and offers good view of the city as well as the sulphourous steam seeping out of the craters. There are numerous places that sells the black eggs that are boiled using these spring water. Pretty crowded in the morning to early afternoon though!

The gate was closed when we visited. We heard it has been closed for 2 weeks already due to the snowy weather. But I have been there before so I wasn't too disappointed. We still get to eat the black eggs which is the tastiest egg ever. My son insisted on peeling all the eggs. He had so much fun.

This is an unusual place to visit. The smell of sulphur is everywhere and you can the smoke from the volcano from the cable car. The black eggs were something different to look at although they tasted like normal boiled eggs.

If you don't like the smell of sulphur, don't bother to come here. But, if you do visit, firstly take the rope way: a spectacular cable car ride to get here. Once you arrived, the smell of sulphur is everywhere as this is an active volcanic area. Do try the black eggs here, eggs boiled with sulphur water and together... More

Taking the Hakone Ropeway provides some beautiful views of the area and once int he Valley, you can see an active volcano - the smell of sulfur can be a bit much, but a great experience with awesome views.

It stinks in the true sense of the world, but it's different. The black eggs are a fun treat, but they come in a pack of 5 so if you're a couple you might need to share with some stranger.

Stunning visit! View of crater/rocks. Will be quite an amazing sight on a clear day. I went on a cloudy/rainy day hence the view was rather poor, but the crater was still visible when the fog cleared for a few minutes. Try the black egg! Quite an experience. The hiking/walking routes are closed for now, hence only the visitor Center,... More
