Umi Jigoku

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.

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

    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...
  • 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.
