  • Hell Valley (Jigokudan) in Noboribetsu, Japan
  • Ever wonder why it is called Hell Valley? It’s because this place is rumored to be occupied by oni or Japanese demons!

    Hell Valley is part of Shikotsu-Toya National Park. Visitors to the park are able to witness wide range volcanic activity. You can smell the sulfuric acid from various areas of the park. Hot spring vents can be seen steaming throughout the place.

    From the main view deck, there are different wooden walking trails you can take; you can either choose the 10-minute or 15-minute walk. The walk isn’t that hard, and there are plenty of spots to entertain you while walking. Marvel at different volcanic activity fizzing just below the surface! The best part: there’s no entrance fee!
