Beppu Jigoku Meguri (Hot Springs Tour)

Other Sightseeing Spot
For over a thousand years, the gasses, hot mud, and boiling waters erupting from beneath the area from Kanawa to Kamegawa have led it to being called the Jigoku (Hells) of Beppu. In 2009, four hot springs, Umi (Sea) Jigoku, Chinoike (Blood Pond) Jigoku, Tatsumaki Jigoku, and Shiraike (White Pond) Jigoku were designated as National Places of Scenic Beauty. Visiting these four hot springs in addition to three other famous ones is fun and enjoyable. In addition to hot spring eggs (slow boiled in hot spring waters), hell-themed souvenirs such as Chinoike ointment, and Enman no Yu (bath salts) are popular to take home and give to friends. A 15-minute drive by car from JR Beppu Station.

    If you are in Beppu already, you may as well go there. If you have to make a special trip to Beppu or an excursion from Fukuoka, it is not worth it. Despite they claim to have 7 jigoku, some are so...

    The title of my review sums it all up. You wont miss anything by giving this place a pass. The entire development is just too well organized and landscaped for it to be natural. While I m sure some...
