Hells of Beppu, Beppu

(3.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Witness but don't bathe in Hells of Beppu, a series of boiling pools created by volcanic activity. All eight thermal ponds offer something different, with one producing mud bubbles and feeding into an adjacent foot bath, another colored bright red and presenting an uncanny and photogenic appearance, and a third serving as a breeding space for crocodiles. Travel easily between the "hells" by bus tour or car. Put Hells of Beppu into our Beppu family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Beppu.

  • I suggest getting a day bus ticket, go and see some (if not all the 8 hells), and then to relax, go and soak in one of the nice hot springs of Beppu.  more »
  • I wanted to see some natural hot springs. These were so modified that they were not nice anymore. There were too many tourists and every kind of shops. I think that crocodiles are not natural Japanese...  more »
