Umi Jigoku (海地獄)

4.0

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

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.

Review of Umi Jigoku

Reviewed:2020/04/26 Boiling hot water can poach an egg. . .
The largest of 8 hells in Beppu. There is the large Blue Hell with bright blue, boiling hot water, hot enough to poach an egg. There is a smaller Red Hell and garden with a small pond and path...
Reviewed:2020/03/06 Nice, worth to visit!
We decided to go to this out of all other 8 hells of Beppu and it was worth the visit! There were 2 hot springs (the red and the blue one) and a pond with a hike track up to the hill.
Reviewed:2020/02/03 Less is More Part 439 - Shallow Smallish Steamy Smelly Spring
One of the half dozen notable jigoku (literally means hell) or hot springs in Beppu. We bought the ¥400 single entry. In retrospect the charge seems rather high to see just a medium-size turquoise...

          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.
