Witness but don't bathe in Hells of Beppu, a series of boiling pools created by volcanic activity. All eight thermal ponds offer something different, with one producing mud bubbles and feeding into an adjacent foot bath, another colored bright red and presenting an uncanny and photogenic appearance, and a third serving as a breeding space for crocodiles. Travel easily between the "hells" by bus tour or car. Use our Beppu route planner to visit Hells of Beppu on your trip to Beppu, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

The Hells of Beppu were super interesting.. 7 in total, all withiin walking distance of each other. (albeit 2 are 3km from the others). Each are unique and the surrounding area is beautiful... more »
Amazing attraction of Oita prefecture. Each attraction is 400yen. Also free parking area is available at all the hell sites. The area is very gassy and it smells sort of like rotten eggs. But overall awesome experience.
The place is awesome and interesting. The onsen aren't regular run-of-the-mill hot springs as their temperatures are too high for anyone to soak in safely. There is a smell of sulfur. Be aware if you have problem with chemical smell. There is a souvenir shop and vending machines. Nice place for photography.
