Umijigoku, Beppu

(4/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • "Hell tour" has set ticket, depending on the date and time may be can't do all. "Ocean hell" is not essential for first place. Blue water color nice and impressive.

  • Again, there is no going to see much, but I've heard it's okay compared to other hell. But admission is not really see his cock compared to the dozens featured two sounds.

  • Along with the mountain just 10 minutes by car from Beppu. Entrance fee is 400 Yen. Steam eruption in 1,200 years ago in cobalt blue hell in there at all times. Puddings are sold at kiosks at the entrance in the famous and delicious. One free admission after the foot bath, you can pretty much relax.
