In addition to the hot springs, there is also a landscape called “Eight Hells”. It is smoggy all year round, just like the “purgatory” mentioned in several major religions. "Eight Hells" refers to the Sea Hell, Main Stone Archway Hell, Mountain Hell, Salt Works Hell, Ghost Mountain Hell, White Pool Hell, Blood Pool Hell, Dragon Scroll Hell. Each of the “Eight Hells” has its own characteristics. For example, the spring water in the Blood Pool Hell is blood red as its name suggests.

Originally, I booked the trip to Kyushu because the flight tickets were cheap. I didn't expect that I would miss the plane (crying). In the end, I had to buy a transfer ticket from Hong Kong to Fukuoka, which cost me an extra 3000 RMB (my heart is bleeding). Luckily, I went to Victoria Peak and the night view over there cured my injured soul.
