  1. More about Beppu

Beppu

Beppu is a relatively small Japanese city that offers hell on earth – a hell you’d actually be willing to visit. One of Japan’s Three Great Hot Springs, Beppu is famous for not just its numerous hot springs, but for the unique features they have. The airports in Oita and Fukuoka both offer ideal points of entry, leaving a one to two hour ride to reach Beppu.

There are eight hells within the city that make up the major attractions. These volcanic pits are too hot to be diluted into an onsen, but they make for some incredible sights. Visit Umi-Jigoku, or Sea Hell, for its bright cobalt blue waters and Chinoike-Jigoku, or Blood Pond Hell, where the waters have been turned red from the melted clay. Tatsumaki-Jigoku is also known as Geyser Hell and boasts a geyser that erupts every 30 minutes or so. In between tours of Beppu’s hells, there are other sites worth checking out. Kintetsu Beppu Ropeway is one such site, and it offers full views of the city and bay from the top of Mt. Tsurumi. For 360-degree views, head to Beppu City Global Tower. For the onsen experience, head to downtown Beppu where you can bathe in hot springs or take a hot sand bath.
