Beautiful scenery, Sulfur smell and black egg are three main things that you will find in this place. It was amazing view, to see it from cable car. Very nice and must visit when you are in Hakone.

The Great Boiling Valley was formed approximately 3,000 years ago as a result of the volcanic eruption. Mt Kamiyama(1438m) is still volcanic fumes with sulfide being emitted. We can see the boiling pools, steam spewing vents. They make black eggs.

This valley with the steam coming from the hot springs is quite interesting. You do need to get used to the sulfur smell that is always present

This is a nice earth heated area. Fun to visit if you have the Hakone Pass. The trails were closed, so there was not much to do there. The most interesting thing was probably riding the rope way.

It’s just warm inside but overall it was good. Didn’t have a chance to see much coz it was cloudy but was an experience.

Walking paths up the slops were closed due to recent rock/landslides. On a previous visit was blessed with an unobstructed view of Mt Fuji. Very windy, a little chilly even in summer. Used to be just the black eggs. Now they have black pau, mochi,...More

The walking trails at the top of the cable car are not open right now. There are other trails but due to volcanic activity it changes. Once you get there, traffic and waiting in line for the cable car, an hour or two is... More

When we went in July, they told us due to the volcanic activity and gasses, that the trail is closed indefinitely. Hope this helps!
