Oniyama Jigoku鬼山地獄

3.5

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

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.

Review of Oniyama Jigoku

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/01/28 Hell full of Crocs
This Jigoku is filled with Crocodiles imported from Sarawak, Malaysia. Sometimes I give it to the Japanese to think of such attractions, ie to have Crocodiles enclosed and kept in a 4 seasons country...
Reviewed:2019/10/02 Dreadful should be closed one to miss
I want to give it zero. Foul. Animals in horrific condition. Dirty enclosures. About 30 animals in one enclosure. It’s barbaric. One to miss.

Was very disappointed and quite shocked about the conditions the crocodiles are „bred“ (not sure what exactly these poor creatures are bred for).

They haven‘t got enough space to swim or move...

          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.
