Although the place was dangerous in winter (paths are covered with snow and very slippery), it was definitely worth the visit. Not recommended for the elderly to visit in winter because many people were clinging on the railing when going down and up the slopes....More

Very nice trail and the scene is amazing. But the snow makes the road slippery and several trails are closed due to frozen slippery road.

Nature at its finest! Worth a visit to see this active site, especially with all the snow around. It is still fairly safe to walk around, the paths are well defined.

Night walk is special with may tourists gone. The smell is 'Hell' ...but then we are in Hell Valley. Noboribetsu is quite 'dead' at night in winter. Nothing spectacular, just a nice, peaceful walk after dinner.

I stayed at Muroran and drove there. I think it is a better option. Your length of stay at Noboribetsu, Lake Toya and Muroran become very flexible.
