Unzen Jigoku雲仙地獄

4.0

Other Sightseeing Spot

Featuring air thick with the smell of sulfur and white steam bursting from underground, Unzen Jigoku (Unzen Hell) really lives up to its name. It is known as a place where Christians were once tortured to death, and there are monuments dedicated to their martyrdom. Some of the attractions include the “Unzen Jigoku Steaming Footbath,” where visitors can experience the sensation of geothermal heat and steam, and the “Unzen Jigoku Workshop,” which sells eggs with an interesting effect: “Eat one, and you live a year longer. Eat two, and you live two years longer. Eat three, and you live long until you die.” In the fall, over 2,000 of these eggs are sold every day, making them quite the hot item indeed.

We took the ferry from Kumamoto and when disembark in Shimabara, this place is only 30mins away. When arrived, you can tell that this is a very small onsen town with little amenities. The biggest...

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
