Torijigoku "Bird Hell"（One of the 8 Views of the Torizaki Valley）
The place where the birds once suffered serves as the entrance to this valley
Introduced as a travel destination as early as the Meiji Era, the Torizaki Valley has been a famous location since ages past. Located 4 kilometers from the highway entrance, this sight is the most downstream of the 8 views of the Torizaki Valley, and truly looks like the entrance to a bird hell. The name is said to originate from the carbon dioxide that naturally emanates from the ground, which suffocates the wild birds unfortunate enough to be in the area at the time.
