Eight “hells” of spectacular hot springs. Very popular sightseeing course.

Area Map

The “hells” of Beppu
Some of the many fountainheads in Beppu have very unique characteristics; they gush hot mud or boiling water from deep inside the earth. Those hard-to-access hot spring areas were feared by the locals and were called hells. Now the safety is secured and they have become very popular sightseeing locations. Especially the “hell tour” which guides you tour around eight famous hells is very popular and attracting many tourists. Four out of the eight hells are designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty. Their unique coloring and form make them valuable not only for sightseeing point of view but also for academic point of view. This is where you can easily feel and experience the throb of the earth, a must-see spot.
