Chinoike Jigoku血の池地獄

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

As the name says, this is a bright red hot spring which brims with hell. The pond itself is quite large with a depth of more than 30 meters and a width of 1,300 square meters, and the appearance of the steam rising up is a spectacle. Red hot mud which contains such metals as iron oxide and magnesium oxide from the stratum jet out and deposit, resulting in the pond gets dyed red due to the deposited material. There is an adjoining restaurant where you can taste the Beppu specialty of steaming hell and Oita’s local cuisine. There is also a footbath. The hot spring has been designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty.

Reviewed:2018/10/17 A giant pool of orange/red bubbling mud
I think in size the biggest of all seven hells. The location is well kept and absolutely worth your visit.
You can walk all around this hell completely and have a great overview from above on the...
Reviewed:2018/09/27 Reddish coloured pool - slippery walk up to the top when wet
The pool has a reddish colour which is unique. We visited on a rainy day and the walk up to the top to look back down on the pool was slippery - take care if you visit in the rain! The front part...

It is a bus ride away from most of the other hells, just near...

          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.
