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.

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.
