Umijigoku, Beppu
(4.1/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • If you do not have the time to most bloggers only selected sea hell. Than you think size is 1 hour time but enough was enough to send foot baths. I think there are plenty of more expensive item to buy souvenir shop.

  • Probably the most beautiful site of the "Hells of Beppu". The garden (toriis and red painted bridge) and its alleys lead you to water (color blue lagoon) in boiling holes. Another smoking hole of water takes the blood-red color. A pond is home to the rare water lilies Victoria amazonica shaped giants of Mussel pie, capable of supporting the weight of a very young child. Boiled egg, cooked in hot water fumaroles at the smell of suffer are for sale at the shop. A beautiful appearance of the geothermal activity of Beppu and its region.
