hkskyline's 2013 in BEPPU - Seismic Activity on Kyushu

Beppu is famous for its "hells". These are natural hot springs that portray images of hell. A package ticket is available to enter all 8 sights for 2000 yen.







Umi-Jigoku is a 200m-deep cobalt-blue pond of boiling water created 1200 years ago due to a volcanic eruption. Even these flowers seem to survive in these hot waters.









Boiling mud is a special feature at the Oniishibozu-Jigoku.









Yama-Jigoku was named after a mountain of mud formed over the years.









Demons roam around the Kamado-Jigoku.





Visitors can try the hot spring mineral water, but it is quite hot so let it cool first!











Shiraike-Jigoku's special feature is its creamy-white water. A Japanese garden has been built around this pond. As it was already near closing, the crowds thinned out and I had a piece of serenity all to myself.



Eggs boiled from hot spring water are quite popular in Beppu. They didn't taste too different from regular boiled eggs but it was a nice snack after a lot of sightseeing.



Steam rises from a lot of places throughout this part of town. It was a cool day, so walking near one of these vents is a refreshingly warm experience.

the place looks so cool and serene...those hot muds and steams look like small active volcanoes.

It is a bit eerie to see steam rising everywhere. These "hells" are intensely hot and getting too close will risk scalding your skin. No hot springs here, but I heard there are some further out in the countryside.
