Beppu Onsen

Hot Spring
Beppu Onsen is located in Beppu Prefecture, Japan, where there are many hot springs, geysers and fumaroles. The first time I came to Beppu Hot Spring, I was very impressed by the misty scene. At first, I thought that the smoke was from the chimney of the factory. In fact, these smokes came from the hot springs homes all over the town. The air is fresh and the environment is elegant, which is a good place for a relaxing holiday.

Hai Hell is one of the eight hells in Beppu's popular tourist route "Beppu Hell Parade". It is also a somewhat large route. It was created when the Tsurumi Mountain broke out 1200 years ago. Because the water is full of iron sulphate, the pool water has a see through blue color, giving people the sensation of the sea, but the temperature is as hot as 98 degrees Celcius.
