Hiking Map

Due to the volcanic gases, hiking trails leading to Owakudani are closed since 2015 as shown in the following map.

Asiatic black bear, wild boar and sika deer sightings have increased throughout the park over the past several years. Making noise on the trail can alert them to your presence before you encounter them.
