Hells of Beppu, Beppu

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.
