I went to this area to take bath at a famous hot spring as a day trip. I visited Oniishi-no-yu hot spring house. I took bath at 1500 yen. It was not crowded due to earthquakes in Kumamoto. However I didn't feel any effect from earthquakes in Beppu. Now it is very good chance to take Beppu hot spring calmly.

Offers very dramatic views of streets full of steam - especially at night - Looks like Hell!

The hells are well worth a tour over one or 2 days, with a wide variety of boiling pools of different colours... More
