  • The Benten Geyser at Onikobe Kanketsusen is the largest geyser of its kind in Japan, shooting water 15 meters into the air every 10 to 15 minutes. The regularity and height of the eruptions has turned the geyser into a minor tourist attraction, and a “nature theme park” of sorts, with a handful of other volcanic-themed activities, has sprung up around it. There is an open-air hot spring bath, an onsen tamago making area, and a steaming waterfall visitors can view.

    A second, smaller geyser is located next to the park’s rest house. The windows of the cafe on the second-floor overlook it, allowing diners the unique perspective of gazing down upon a geyser as it erupts.
