Beppu is a city in Ōita Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Japan, at the west end of Beppu Bay. For a country that loves hot springs and bathing as much as Japan does, the city of Beppu is a hallowed vacation destination. From the bubbling 'hells' (jigoku) of boiling hot water to the more tame hot springs for bathing (onsen), Beppu is filled with geothermal activity, as well as a plethora of hotels, restaurants and guesthouses.
Hells of Beppu is a group of famous hot springs in the city of Beppu. Beppu is rich in hot springs, and practically all the households there have endless levels of steam puffing from them constantly. The Hells of Beppu consist of Umi-Jigoku (Sea Hell), Oniishibozu-Jigoku (Oniishi Shaven-Head Hell), Yama-Jigoku (Mountain Hell), Kamado-Jigoku (Cooking Pot Hell), Oniyama-Jigoku (Demon Mountain Hell), Shiraike-Jigoku (White Pond Hell), Chinoike-Jigoku (Blood Pond Hell), and Tatsumaki-Jigoku (Tornado Hell). Each of the hot springs has different a mineral composition and benefits, and the view they form is simply spectacular. Because the temperatures of these hotsprings are extremely high, they are only for viewing rather than bathing in.
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.
