Owakudani (Great Boiling Valley) is a volcanic valley with active sulphur vents which was formed around 3000 years ago following the last eruption of the Hakone volcano.
It is a popular tourist site for its scenic views, volcanic activity, and especially, “Kuro- tamago” - a local specialty of eggs boiled in the hot springs. The eggshell turns black and smells slightly sulphuric. The egg is said to increase longevity when eaten. Eating one is said to add seven years to your life. You may eat up to two and a half for up to seventeen and a half years, but eating a whole third is said to be highly unadvised.
Then, tour goes to Togen-dai port. Take a Pirate boat to cruise across peaceful Lake Ashi and enjoy the picturesque and serene natural beauty of the creator lake.
The return trip to Tokyo is 2 ways. Return by coach to major hotels in Tokyo or return by bullet train (Shinkansen) from Odawara station to Tokyo station.
You also may drop off at Hakone after a cruise across Lake Ashi if you’re planning to stay in Hakone where it is known as the hot spring town.
