Owakudani is the “Great Boiling Valley”. It is a volcanic valley with active sulphur vents and hot springs with Mount Fuji clearly visible in the background. Try the Kuro-tamago “black egg” a local specialty of eggs hard-boiled in the hot springs. The boiled eggs turn black and smell slightly sulphuric; consuming the eggs 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 inadvisable!
