It's amazing to see this rare natural phenomenon up close! Clouds of sulphur steam are rising up from the mountain, and turn the rocks green and yellow. The smell is quite overwhelming, so we didn't spend too much time here, but we still remember this place fondly.

I had been here twice but still wonder is it really sulphur, hahaha~~ It is real Sulphur, of course. Maybe the direction of wind blow was towards the mountain and I cannot smell the sulphur. The most interest thing here is the souveneir shop. Take some time to visit there and find a smarter way to take off the egg... More

Loved this place. Steam roars from the ground. It reeks of sulphur. Nice visitor centre with good coffee and a very good shop. Sure, it's a bit touristy, but what a great place to see geology writ large.

This is an essential piece in the fascinating trail of National Parks which highlight different elements of Japan's volcanic origins. It is relatively rare to get up this close and personal to ongoing volcanic activity and the venting steam and sulphurous deposits are fascinating. No-one with any interest in how the landscape has been shaped could fail to be impressed... More

Mountain spewing hydrogen sulfide and depositing yellow sulfur on rocks. Due to the heat the area is barren with no vegetation on site. As the warm water spring flow downhill it is used as spa. Do not miss the free hot foot public pool at the next town. Hydrogen sulfide gives a strong odor of rotten egg and your nose... More
