火口乃泉 (Kakō no Izumi)
|Open:||9:00 till 18:00 (you can enter till 17:00)|
|Price:||Adults: 500 yen; children: 200 yen|
Two weeks ago we visited Kakō no Izumi in Tsukahara Onsen. This place is special because of the nearby volcano. To see the volcano you have to take a steep road up the mountain. It takes about five minutes to get there. Entrance to the volcano park costs 200 yen.
The landscape is really impressive.
The gases can be dangerous. Stay behind the fence!
The onsen could have been better. The water was luke warm, so that was a bit disappointing. You cannot use soap or shampoo here. So, all you can do is just sit down and relax.
