The most impressive scene at Noboribetsu is the Jigokudani (hell valley), where yellowy gray volcanic gas seeps from the surface of the rocks. This makes the whole place smell strongly of sulfur, and gives it an image like that of hell. The valley is a 450-meter-diameter mouth of a volcano, which produces 3,000 liters of hot water per minute.
Lot's of other Hell are spotted in the Hell Valley with small tombstone. It is fun to walk around with guide explanation.
It has 9 different kinds of water, containing minerals such as sulfer, salt, and iron. The quality of these minerals results in the spa being ranked among the world's most exceptional hot springs.
