Unzen Jigoku Hell, Unzen
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Take a walk through the otherworldly Unzen Jigoku Hell, an area of intense volcanic activity. Steam and the smell of sulfur spurt out of the rugged landscape, either side of the wooden walkway on which you tread. Though other places nearby use the energy to create pleasant hot pools and spa facilities, here in "jigoku" (hell) the power of nature remains untempered and leaves a lasting impression. Jigoku may seem a strong, overly dramatic word for it these days, but between 1627 and 1632 the place really did represent hell to some, with Christians tortured to death in the hot springs.

島原、雲仙方面に遊びに行った際、寄りました。箱根の大涌谷のようなところでした。温泉熱を利用した岩盤や足湯など気軽に楽しめます。It came when I went to play in Shimabara, cloud Unzen area. It was like the owakudani, Hakone. Feel free to enjoy hot heat rock or foot.show original

You come to Unzen for the baths. But walk around the hell before you take your first bath. The walk is easy and most part of the path is wheeler friendly. There are plenty picture spots.
