Jigokudani, Noboribetsu

4.0
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. Plan your visit to Jigokudani and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Noboribetsu tour planner.

  • Went as a day trip from Sapporo. Few hiking trails that are pretty peaceful compared to the crowded entrance areas. Nice footbath hot spring to relax the tired feet along the path.  more »
  • Great place to visit if your in the area. The smell of Sulfur over there is quite something, try to wear non slip footwear as some of the path is quite slippery due to the ice.  more »
