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.

煙モクモクの谷をバックに地獄谷の看板付近はたくさんの観光客で賑わっていました。登別の鉄板撮影スポットですね。そこにはボランティアガイドさんのような方も数名いて、私たちにもユーモアたっぷりで散策コースを紹介してくれました。大湯沼までの散策路はアップダウンのあるちょっとハードな道のりでしたが、紅葉もキレイで景色は抜群でした。 more »The signboard of Jigokudani with the valley of smoke spiders in the background was crowded with many tourists. It is a teppan photography spot of Noboribetsu. There were a few volunteer guides there, and they introduced us to a walking course with a lot of humor. The walking path to Oyunuma was a bit hard road with ups and downs, but the autumn leaves were beautiful and the scenery was outstanding.
温泉大好きで、絶対行くと決めていた場所です！苦手な人も多いけど、私は硫黄の臭いが好きで、湯に浸かる前から温泉に入った気分を味わえました実際に温泉に入る前だったのでこの後の温泉がより楽しみになってテンション上がりました⤴ more »I love hot springs and I decided to go there! There are a lot of people who are not good at it, but I liked the smell of sulfur, and I was able to taste the feeling of taking a hot spring before soaking in the hot water, so I was more excited about the hot spring after this and the tension went up⤴.
