Black eggs - Hakone

After the stunning views on the cable car, you are spat out at Owakudani - fittingly called Hell Valley because there are bubbling pools of sulphur everywhere! A stream of people head to these stinking pools, take a photo of the bubbling mass, eat the famous black eggs that are supposed to be very healthy, and then trot off again. Part of me felt that I should have tried the eggs, but the combination of the foul stench and the searing heat put me right off them - can't imagine why! Even Hello Kitty had her own black egg outfit...
