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...More

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!...More

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...More

The minute you head off on the trail to this lake, you lose about 90% of the crowd. The views from above are terrific, and we saw deer in the shrubbery. From here, I'd recommend Funamiyama path with its jizo statues - it follows the...More

Splendid view of the lake... understand that this is a thermal lake where you can see bubbling of thick mud. Usually driving is possible as we saw a carpark but was closed during winter.
