Jigokudani, Noboribetsu

4.1
#1 of 20 in Things to do in Noboribetsu
Enjoy the vibrant natural scenery of Jigokudani, a red stone crater valley sprinkled with steam vents and hot springs. Fittingly named “Hell’s Valley,” the area is actually a crater formed by a volcanic eruption more than 20,000 years ago. From the boardwalk above the crater you can observe the bubbling sulfurous streams, rising steam, and the vivid red cliffs, all contributing to the area’s “hellish” appearance. Explore the surroundings on the nearby undulating forest trail to discover a hot sulfur pond and dip your feet in the river that flows from it. Our Noboribetsu trip itinerary builder makes visiting Jigokudani and other Noboribetsu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    After the noboribetsu date jidai has been stopped. We half-empty noboribetsu has several theme parks, but fairly high admission none, so far. By saying that I went. Had the air smells of sulfur, but I sprang hot springs here in ー and feeling. I think anyone who likes walking because there are several walking trails. I think Oyu swamp natural foot was slightly less than 1400 m. I went in the car, looked in the vicinity of hell Valley signs. Those who have stayed in the hot springs we went walking by so Oyu swamp parking also included the parking fee was 500 yen to foot Oyu Marsh parking lot moved to the car was a day trip, but can walk.

Where to stay in Noboribetsu

The majority of places to stay in Noboribetsu lie inland, to the north of the main train station. Close to the hot springs and the volcanic valley, accommodations lie on all the streets across the modest urban area of the resort town. Many people see staying in traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) as part of the experience, but some more modern hotels can be found across town, too. Visitors primarily look to find an option with onsite "onsen" (traditional Japanese hot spring spas), although you can always arrange a visit to one if not.
