Owakudani

Owakudani

Accessible via the Hakone Ropeway, Owakudani is a dramatic volcanic zone, characterized by boiling hot springs, hot rivers and sulfurous clouds drifting through the valley. The area was formed around 3000 years ago, when the Hakone volcano last erupted. Today, it draws many visitors who come to experience a landscape they will rarely have the chance to visit, and so close to major urban centres!

Owakudani is accessed via Owakudani Station as the ropeway heads onto Togendai Station/Ashinoko. From the station, walking trails wind through the volcanic zone and also lead to the peak of Mount Kamiyama and onto Mount Komagatake – taking around 2 hours. From there, visitors can get back onto the ropeway and head down to Ashinoko or walk a 30-minute travel down to the lake.
