Owaku-dani Valley, Hakone-machi

3.9
Formed by an ancient eruption, Owaku-dani Valley features active steam vents and hot water pools. From the local ropeway stop, you can navigate your way down to the active volcanic area and marvel at stream rising from many subterranean openings. Don't miss an opportunity to try a fresh onsen tama--these soft-boiled eggs, cooked by the sulphur waters, feature distinctive blackened shells. Inquire about the area's ropeway service status before you visit, as increased volcanic activity can lead to temporary closures.

  • Climbing Mount Fuji is not easy, but to ride with the breeze on a cable car to a height of 1200 meters and make magnificent panoramic photos with Fujiyama and Lake Aishi, stretching at the feet, quite easy: for this there is a cable car! Ten minutes and you will find yourself in a fairy tale :-) The views are fantastic! I even wanted to organize the presentation of my book here on the observation deck:-) then I figured in my head how long it would take for all the invitees to go upstairs (the cabins are small: a maximum of 10 people), so that by the time a hundred people reach the summit, my presentation will be over... As a result, I spent the presentation of the novel elsewhere (see my other posts), and on the panoramic site Ovakudani just took wonderful photos:-)
