These eight boiling pools resulting from volcanic activity have varying characteristics: one is blood-red in color due to its red clay deposits, another has the largest geyser in Japan, and still another is used for breeding crocodiles.

This small has many different hot springs or Hells as they are called here. Each one has a different color or characteristic, so it's fun to visit all of them.

I bought the all in pass which entitled me to visit 7 pools. Chinoike Jigoku & Umi-Jigoku are the 2 I like most especially Umi, i feel it is impressive with its colour. Bring a towel with you, most Jigoku have a section where you...More

かまど地獄 first to go, most worth for site seeing, then Ocean, then Red Blood, but if you want to go all the Hells, buy the whole set tickets first.

I visited the Chinoike Jigoku, which is famous for the blood-red hot pool. Enjoy the sight of the hot steam rising off its surface into the air. A great place for selfie and photoshoot. The entire area is rather small, 10 to 15 minutes is...More

If your in Beppu this is a must to see. If coming to Beppu just for this and not staying at a Onsen than maybe not. But if staying at onsen and coming to see this than definitely worth it

We visit only the 1st one nice to see but not more then that. Also they are busy with building construction work and many of the Garden routes are closed.

We bought the pass included admission of the 7 hells at 2000yen (admission of each costs 400yen). If you don't have enough time I suggest you can go some of it as some are in smaller scale. Most recommended the 海地獄,血池地獄 and 龍卷地獄.

Not a "must do" in Japan but go there if you're in the area! Visit is quick but definitely impressive

Where can i buy the one day pass for all the hells (hot springs)? Can I find the pass in Beppu JR Station?

You can buy the one day pass at either Beppu JR Station Tourist Information Centre or any of the hells. Note that the one day pass allows you to enter 7 of the 8 hells; it does not include admission into Yama Jigoku... More

6 hells are clustered together. Another 2 hells are some distance away from the 6 hells. From Beppu Station, you can take bus 2 or 5 or 41 to the first hell in Kannawa District (18 minutes, 330 yen). You can walk along the... More
Hi, I am travelling to Japan in Mid Nov with parents (both aged 60 years), husband and a son (aged 3.5 years) Out of a total of 9 days (2 in tokyo for local sites and Mt.Fuji, 2 in Kyoto for golden temple and Nara and 1 in Hiroshima for Miyajima Island) , I have 2 spare days that I need to plan and have 3 places in mind. Please help me pick 2 places so we can enjoy the trip - 1. Nagano for snow monkeys (Can add a day in Tokyo and make a day trip) 2. Nikko National Park (Can add a day Tokyo and make a day trip) 3. Beppu (Can go from Hiroshima and stay a night and return to Tokyo) My gut feeling is to skip Beppu but a friend insists we should not miss it and says that Nagano and Nikko can be very cold in mid November. Please help!!

While in Miyajima don't miss the ropeway to the top of the mountain. It is worth it.
