The name "Yama Jigoku" comes from the fact that its fumarolic steams and gases are shooting out of the rugged rocky surfaces of this mountainous region.
Utilizing the geothermal energy, warmer climate animals such as hippopotami, flamingos, peacocks, elephants and other rare species are being nurtured here. Feeding is available for the hippos and elephants, as vibrant and energetic scenes of the wild creatures can be captured here quite often.
