Owakudani

0 0 Review

Be awed by storm clouds of volcanic steam that gather over the active volcano, Owakudani (大涌谷), the Great Boiling Valley. Created around 3,000 years ago, today the crater-valley is a popular tourist site, despite the ominous and evocative name. The volcanic valley is still alive today with active sulfur vents and hot springs. Once called the “Grand Inferno” or “Great Hell” thanks to the streams of white sulfuric smoke reaching toward the sky, it was renamed when the Meiji Emperor and Empress visited Hakone in 1873 because locals hesitated to invite the two to a place with such a foreboding name.

Notice

Volcanic alerts were lifted on Friday Nov 15th 2019, ending a six-month closure that saw most parts of the Owakudani area temporarily closed to access due to an increase in volcanic gases.

The area is now safe to access, though it is advised that those with respiratory problems, heart conditions, pregnant women or young children do not enter the valley due to slight risk from volcanic fumes.

Highlights

Black Eggs

The kuro-tamago, or black eggs, of Owakudani are as famous as they are terrible to look at. You might wonder if it’s really worth it to eat the sulfur-pit boiled egg, but be at ease; the eggs are tasty and perfectly safe. It’s believed that eating just one will add 7 years to your life.

Mt. Fuji Vista

Owakudani’s Visitor Center is said to be one of the best places to see Mt. Fuji from. It’s true that the viewpoint has given some amazing shots of the famed Mt. Fuji—be sure to check weather forecasts for clear skies or you may be sorely disappointed.

Hakone Ropeway

Ride 130 meters above Hakone’s Owakudani on the Hakone Ropeway. The suspended car will take you to and from Owakudani’s lookout point; up and down either side of the mountain. The view from the Lake Ashi side can offer beautiful views of Mt. Fuji and the lake, while the ropeway over Owakudani itself gives some truly terrific shots of the valley.

As one of the closest areas to Mount Fuji, it's no wonder Hakone Shrine has the most dramatic view of the iconic mountain in Japan, a Cherry Blossom..
