    Oita Pref. Beppushi Kannawa 559-1
    Umi Jigoku boasts of being the largest among the Beppu Jigoku hot springs. The beautiful cobalt blue color is due to iron sulphate in the hot spring water. Royal water lilies and tropical water lilies are cultivated using the heat from the hot spring and the flowers will be at their best from early May until early November. At the Bon Festival event, lower grade elementary school children (up to 20 kilograms) can get on the leaves of the royal water lilies that float in the pond. There is also a footbath. The hot spring has been designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty.

    Its definitely the best of the Seven Hells. Very beautiful and surreal place. Definitely recommended for photographers and onsen enthusiasts!

    Oita Pref. Beppushi Motomachi 16-23
    A low-cost public hot spring facility operated by Beppu City. Originally erected in 1879, the current building was built in 1938. In the spa’s famous sand bath, visitors lie down in sand wearing a yukata robe, after which assistants cover you with sand heated by the site’s natural hot spring. Up to eight persons can use the sand bath at the same time. Wait times may grow long when the facility is busy. A 10-minute walk from JR Beppu Station.

    I was recommended this onsen by my brother who lives in Japan and he said this was non-negotiable. And boy was he right. A wonderful experience in a special place and all for an affordable price.

    In 1923, for the first time in Japan, the breeding of crocodiles was started which used the heat from a hot spring—the place is also referred to as “Crocodile Hell”. There are a number of crocodile breeding areas surrounding the Jigoku pond, and the number of crocodiles kept there is roughly 70. At the weekend, there is also an event where a member of staff gives food to the crocodiles, so you can observe the exciting moment when the crocodiles are fed.

    I love Crocodiles and all but I am not a fan of how they are kept here. I was looking forward to seeing the crocodiles they had here but couldnt help but feel sorry for all of them. Most of the...

    The name comes from when they used the steam of the spring water to cook rice as an offering on the occasion of the grand festival of the shrine god, Kamado Hachimangu Shrine.

Experience-based facilities are also a feature of this hot spring, such as the demonstrations to increase steam, the high temperature throat and skin steam and the foot bath.

    Said to have once been visited by the great Buddhist priest Kukai, this hot spring facility’s waters come from the Konya Jigoku (“Konya Hell”) hot spring source. In the facility’s wildly popular mud bath, you can enjoy a natural mud pack soaking your skin in the rich mud from the bottom of the cloudy waters of the spring. The facility features two mud bath types – a pair of separate indoor ones for men and women, and a mixed-sex outdoor bath. The mud baths and hot spring waters are said to aid in easing rheumatism, diabetes, atopy, athlete’s foot, and hernias. The nearest bus stop is Konya Jigoku-mae.

Oita Areas

around-area-map

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don’t hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
