Owakudani大涌谷

Other Sightseeing Spot

Owakudani is valley that was created by a volcanic eruption of Mt. Kami around 3,000 years ago. Owakudani is situated at 1,044 meters above sea level, and experiences severe weather, so it is advisable to wear long-sleeved clothing even in summer. The area is still affected by volcanic activity; steam and volcanic gases such as hydrogen sulfide continue to rise up out of the ground. Kuro-tamago, the “Black Eggs” of Owakudani, which are made by exposing eggs to the geothermal heat and chemical reactions resulting from volcanic activity, are very popular with visitors.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
