Wakoto Peninsula (和琴半島) at the southern end of Lake Kussharo (屈斜路湖) has a very active geothermal area at the very end of it - the Oyakotsu Jigoku Steamvents (オヤコツ地獄). Hikers can look at the steamvents from high up on the top of the bluff, but canoeists can land on the beach right next to the vents. Up close, they're an impressive sight to see. Along the way there's a couple of wild, free onsen hotsprings, including one simple one right on the lake shore - bring a shovel to clear it out.
