Japan - Hokkaido : Noboribetsu (Jigokudani Hell valley)

Noboribetsu - Feb 2016

We took a short trip out of Sapporo towards Jigokudani (Hell Valley) at Noboribetsu.

Noboribetsu is part of Shikotsu-Toya National Park and have many types of hot spring water from Jigokudani (Hell Valley).

There are many walking trails through the wooden hills above Noboribetsu but some of them might not passable during winter.

There are ropes all over to assist visitors along the walking trails on the slippery icy path.

Then we walked to the town of Noboribetsu Onsen and booked for our onsen.

This was our onsen room with a window overlooking the forest covered with snow.
