Shiraike Jigoku白池地獄

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A feature of Shiraike Jigoku is its slightly bluish white spring water. When the water gushes from the ground, it is transparent; but when it falls into the pond, its color changes due to the decrease in temperature and pressure. The circumference of the pond is surrounded by small Japanese gardens, and there is a statue of the Saint Ippen Shonin who is considered to have laid the foundation for Beppu’s hot spring district. Also, at the tropical fish aquarium located at the back of the grounds, piranha from the Amazon are bred. The hot spring has been designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty.

          Oita Main Areas


          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.
