What does hell look like? Up on the mountains of Hakone by a tram and a cable car, a daytrip away from Tokyo, is the Owakaduni Hell Valley. Boiling steam comes up from the mountain to create an atmosphere that looks a bit like hell. Aside from looking at steam, the area is famous for it’s gorgeous views and the black egg called Kurotamago.
