Noboribetsu Jigokudani登別地獄谷

Other Sightseeing Spot

This valley is all that remains of an ancient volcanic crater, and is lined with geysers and fumaroles. The hot springs sourced here run to Noboribetsu Onsen. The foaming, boiling scenery led to it being called Demon-dwelling Hell. It's also a perfect autumn leaf viewing spot, when the hillsides are painted red with autumn colors.

Reviewed:2020/01/01 Interesting geological place
Its no surprise that there are so many Onsen in Noboribetsu. The place is full of geological and thermal activity, and you can clearly see it in hells valley. The warm water is flowing freely and...
Reviewed:2019/12/21 Good walk
Carpark cost y500, but no entrance fee to the hell valley.
Various treks available around the place. But you can take good pic within 15 min walk from entrance
Clean toilets and rest stop
Reviewed:2019/12/19 Hell Valley
This is not a very big place to explore. The walk will last less than 30 minutes. Do wear enough if you are travelling during winter.

Is a must to visit the nearby onsen for an authentic hot bath...

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
