Welcome to the hell-pool in Beppu
The word “jigoku” means “burning hell”. The name is taken from the ancient Buddist sutras. There are nine natural hot spring sites you can visit and most in relative walking distance of each other. In 2.5 hours, you will be able to see 9 of the hell pools. You can finish in time to have a bowl of Dando-jiru (local soup) before heading to other visitation places. The “hell” tour (JIGOKU MEGURI) is really something you should do if you make it down to Beppu. A ticket for the 8 hells cost about 2000yen for adults.
