Giant Hot Spring Fountain
The Oyasu Ravine was created by the raging torrents of the Minase River, eroding away both sides of the valley over many years.
Here is where you can get the best view of the Oyasu Gorge’s ‘Giant Hot Spring Fountain,‘ where the water boils at 98℃ and steam gushes intensely, like the Earth is exhaling.
Spring is in fresh green, autumn is colored by the leaves. In winter, you can see large icicles hanging down the gorge.
