Well, when you've enjoyed the onsen, why don't take a 30mins walk there? Although I didn't think it's special it's still worth you to pay a visit to see the valley.

It was a scorching hot summer afternoon as we spent our late morning trekking through Hell's valley. Indeed very doable for somebody as fit as me (and I am not) although expect to spend an hour or so here trekking from the main carpark entrance...More

There were directions and signs about where to go and what to see. The broad walk allows people of all ages to walk around easily. The Yukijin firework at night was amazing, but it was in June and July only. If you have not visited...More

Really beautiful landscape with the boiling water on the ground and steam in the air. Breathtaking scenery and very good spot for photographs. Visited the valley during winter and the steps are a little slippery. Not suitable for older visitors in winter as it's quite...More

The sulphur hot springs are spectacular, with lots of steam and sulphur smells. Several walking routes around the area. In June, the forests are very green and lush. Worthwhile spending some time exploring the forest trails.

A wonderful trip. Tried the natural foot bath while visiting. It is only a short trip, and we got to see a lot of steam and natural Sulphur deposits.

It's amazing to see Nature at work. Hot steam sulphur coming out from the valley naturally, even when it's raining heavily! This Hell valley is a big place. Expect alot of "hiking." Understand from the main entrance parking attendant there are 3 different entrances! It's...More

Besides admiring the extraordinary view of the mountain, I was most captivated by the walking trails where the steps are well kept. Put on a good pair of walking/ jogging shoes and off we go to burn off the extra pounds we have put on...More
