Amazing Colorful Hells of Beppu

The hot spring Hells of Beppu are a nationally-designated “Place of Scenic Beauty” in the onsen town of Beppu, Ōita, Japan. The “hells” are for viewing rather than bathing. They are presented to visitors in a rather touristy fashion, which might not appeal to everybody.
Hells+of+Beppu+18Beppu is a relatively small city, it is famous for its unique and numerous hot springs, which are one of Japan’s Three Great Hot Springs. In addition, there are several thermal vents that create water too hot for hot springs, and make up a unique part of Japan – its 8 “Hells”. These are also a tourist attraction as none are the same and each offers a different Japanese theme.
Hells+of+Beppu+17Beppu is along the coast and pressed by mountains, making for a thin & long city. Most of the most well-known onsens and tourist attractions, including most of the Jigoku or “hells”, are in the Kannawa area which is almost on the opposite side of the city from the train station. However, the tourist-centric bus system makes transport a breeze.
