Things to do: nature, baths, sightseeing
The resort town of Beppu puts the geothermal nature of the region to good use. A number of "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) use the hot springs' naturally warmed waters, bringing visitors from across the country to relax in their hot baths, sand baths, and mud baths. The otherworldly terrain that surrounds has been described as having a "hellish" appearance, with steaming fumaroles and bubbling pools colored red and blue by minerals in the earth. With pristine spas and retreats, and the landscape of the underworld, holidays in Beppu offer a touch of heaven, and a taste of hell. Make Beppu central to your Japan travel plans using our Japan tour planner.

Where to stay

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.
