Hells of Beppu, Beppu

3.3
#1 of 78 in Parks in Oita Prefecture
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. Use our Beppu route planner to visit Hells of Beppu on your trip to Beppu, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Because there are larger stores in the hell and the blood Pool of hell, and if shopping is to be purchased in these two Hell's stores, the shops in the Haitian are selling the most goods. Mountain Hell is not in the Hell group, you have to buy another ticket.

Where to stay in Beppu

The majority of accommodations in Beppu lie in two main areas. The first, down by the coast and close to the main train station, offers a number of hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas), as well as some right on the waterfront. On the side streets here, you can find a few hostels and guesthouses, offering comfortable rooms but nothing more. The second main area lies to the north. Further inland, the area centers on the many geothermal features here, with an abundance of hotels surrounded on all fronts by onsen.
