Hakone: Owakudani

Left: hot spring
Below: me and the Owakudani canyon

This is the Owakudani Valley. There are several steaming spots, which have various water pipes, which I presume carry the hot sulfurous water to the numerous Onsen (Japanese spa) in Hakone.

We climbed a little ways to see the hot springs up close. It was very beautiful, and the smell reminded me of Yellowstone.
