Umijigoku, Beppu
(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Order eggs boiled in naturally scorching pond of Umijigoku as its steam rises from the cobalt-blue surface. Formed over 1,300 years ago, this boiling 200 m (600 ft) deep volcanic wonder of nature is considered the grandest of eight similar "sea hells" in the area. However, if you prefer something more tranquil, visit the gardens with lotus-covered ponds or take a foot bath in milder hot springs. You can also taste egg custard, a local specialty. Arrange to visit Umijigoku and other attractions in Beppu using our Beppu trip itinerary planner.

  • Went to Umijigoku and got to see both the blue and Red bubbling source, and very beautiful nature. Clearly worth seeing! (Think it is enough to go here.) Then wandered down to Beppu and tested footbaths in a steam bath. OUCH! Hot!!! but fun to try.

  • Is not God in the cobalt blue geysers. Explore behind the geyser, but falls to take steam. There are very powerful.

  • 來到別府,總要到訪一個地獄溫泉逛逛,海地獄會是首選。 交通方便,多條路線都可以到達。而且池水顏色特別,還可以看到大蓮花葉養值場及小型血地獄溫泉池。一次過滿足到三個願望。
