SpotOwakudani Valley

Take a short drive or ride on the ropeway, which runs to Togendai and passes through Ubako. You can also pick up the same cable car from from Sounzan Station, one stop from Tozan Railway's Gora Station. Billowing sulfur steam gushes out of the yellow rocks, and on the way up you may have already noticed a distinct egg-like sulferic smell. Although the smell is not really eggs, this volcanic hotbed is famous among locals for its black volcano boilded eggs, of which it is said that the consumption of one will add 7 years to one's life.
