Umijigoku, Beppu

4.0
#2 of 78 in Parks in Oita Prefecture
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.

  • There were so many tourists that the beauty was obscured. But it's still worth a visit. Because the entrance of the lake is beautiful, the back of the bird habitat can be photographed. There's enough soup to soak in if there is no towel to buy, a $200

  • Is called sea hell in the cobalt blue of the Sea seems self-explanatory. Found a high temperature because temperature is 98 degrees as there is a cool blue and spout, steam rising from the mouth. A shrine or some red Torii in the Park and was also God in hell.

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.
