Took the rope way here. Climb is easy. The sulphur smell is insignificant as compared to those in Indonesia... :) Check out the black eggs. It's interesting. Taste to me is no difference from the normal ones in my opinion though.

I got interested with this place when I've read that this is also called as the "Valley of Hell". One of the the places that you should visit when you're in Hakone. Me and my husband got there via bus using our Hakone Free Pass (which we recommend you get; we got ours before we get to Hakone - at... More

It was a long trip to owaku-dani valley but the journey is completely worth it, i would suggest people to get up early morning and head to the valley and experience the cold weather with the steam from the valley.. they have a place to eat also and a lot of souvenirs to buy

This was my first experience with volcanic activity. Reaching Owakudani by Cable car is itself an amazing experience. However due to overcast weather conditions, the photographs weren't that great. Rains and winds meant chilly weather at Owakudani

We were here during Nov 2016 spring and although during the day it was hot and sunny, by the time we got to Owakudani all we could see was just a sea of mists. It was raining lightly and the wind was blowing very hard. Really a disappointment as I was hoping to take lovely photos of the place. Temperature... More

Nice ropeway ride to get there. Amazing view of the suplur pit with steam coming off and the spectacular view of Mt Fuji! You can try the black egg which was supposed to make you live 7yrs longer each egg you consume lol.

Can see Mountain Fuji in good weather, nice and relaxing view, must try the eggs although minimum is a pack of 5. We took a taxi up there from Hakone Yumoto which costs about ¥5,500 but saved us a lot of time waiting for the train or bus.

Must visit in Hakone with a magnificent view of the hot springs. Unfortunately the trails were closed due to prior volcanic activity.

We didn't know anything about this area until we had to transfer from the bus to the ropeway. Magnificent views of Fuji and fascinating hot steam venting from underground. We didn't have time to walk down to the valley but it's definitely on the list of things to do for our next visit, when we would like to spend a... More
