Known as the "City of Steel," Muroran is much more than Hokkaido's industrial base. Visit the fascinating Hell Valley, a 24-acre geothermal crater created by the eruption of Mt. Kuttara 20,000 years ago. Experience roiling lava pits and dip your toes into an onsen natural hot water bath. Enjoy Pacific vistas from high atop Cape Chikyu. Savour some of Muroran's speciality cuisines, including spicy curry Ramen and traditional yakitori made with pork, onions and mustard.
