Prefecture map 13 Owakudani is an active volcanic zone in Hakone, which has been a result of a volcanic eruption about 3,000 years ago. The area is filled with volcanic gas even to this day. The trace of volcanic activity can easily be felt when you take the ropeway up to this area. Its old nickname is “Jigokudani - The Hell Valley”, where people would come for strenuous physical and spiritual training. Owakudani now has become a friendly tourist spot where you can enjoy famous black eggs.
