Clouds of white smoke and strong smell of sulfur forming from rugged rocks. You can see these activities of the volcano very near. Owaku-dani is the site of explosion crater made by eruption of Hakone Volcano 3000 years ago.◎There're parking lots, you can go by car, but it's nice to use a ropeway to see the great view of Owaku-dani.

Owakudani is now crowded with people after the partly lifting of entry control. It's just the strongest powerful spot where people can enter now, a spring named 'Shinsen-no Yu' and Enmei Jizo-son, at the gate to the plot of volcanic smoke which is now closed down. After cleaning your hands in the warm spring, you can pour the spring over Jizo-son and pray... You'll be so refreshed!◎Access: check out the latest situation of entry control and open in HP of Hakone town. Attention: be careful about volcanic gas poisoning. Parking: available
