Umijigoku, Beppu

4.0
#2 of 11 in Parks in Beppu
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. With our online itinerary creator, Beppu attractions like Umijigoku can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Hell is a hell of a place to go, and I think one of them is going to come. There is a small shrine and a warm room in the Haitian prison, and a foot soup. The little food outside has a hell of a pudding.

  • Beautiful garden contains a pond is very clean, Blue Springs. Could you calm hot pudding, poached egg and drinks in souvenir buildings. Manju was sold at the gates of hell. It is here the poached egg was good, wanted to buy in the next day, went to taxi. It is a place to go to have a chance.

  • Sea hell is powerful, with beautiful colors and so is recommended. Location at a shop, has enhanced footbath. Delicious pudding. It seems people think Pond Inlet according to the bus driver says, hell, Miss. Hell is at the back of the shop, so be careful. Di would usually make mistakes, but just in case.

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.
