About
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.

Incredible experience. Not to be missed if you’re in town.

I came to Beppu with no knowledge other than that it was an onsen town. I found out about the Seven Hells and immediately knew what I wanted to do with my day.

Each “hell” was unique and interesting with an obvious history that showed through its modern reality. Highly recommend and don’t forget to eat your Hell Eggs!

The hells have their own characteristics and was interesting to see the different styles. They had pretty colours. Try a boiled egg! We were lucky to see the geyser without long waiting. I thought it was really cool, but I guess not everyone will.

I had a fantastic time visiting all 7 of the famous Beppu hells. Each hell yielded a unique experience and it is worth it to visit each an every one of them. If you are short on time I recommend prioritizing Kamado Jigoku!
有名な別府地獄の7つすべてを訪れて素晴らしい時間を過ごしました。 それぞれの地獄はユニークな体験をもたらしました、そしてそれらの一つ一つを訪問することは価値があります。 時間が足りない場合は、かまど地獄を優先することをお勧めします

You just do not know how magically this place captures your mind and heart. It is a combination of the beauty of nature reflected in the green hills and the hot steam onsens. It is a place where the mind comes to rest and the eyes delight in the magical nature.

I love this place!

If you are a first time visitor, you have to start your Beppu tour with the Hells of Beppu. There are seven in total, the first five are all within walking distance and the next two are 3km away which is still walking distance. Each attraction is 400 Yen, or you can get a little booklet for 2000 Yen that includes all Hells of Beppu. All of them are pretty interesting and different. I wasn't a fan of the crocodile exhibit just based on how they were kept, but all the other attractions were beautiful. There is plenty of parking at each attraction and all the walking paths are set up nicely. It is a bit touristy when compared to other natural phenomena attractions but it is well worth seeing.

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. Buses are available from the Beppu station, Tickets from the Tourist Information centre... (day pass) Something very different to see.

There's only two national class sight seeing points out of 10 in Beppu area. The Hell of Sea is the best one and you should never miss.

Beppu is very famous for its onsen (hot spring). The Eight Hells Onsen, Beppu is far from your imagination because you can see so many onsens in a place. The eight hell onsens are with individual characteristics. Regrettably that day I visited Beppu is raining heavily so I cannot visit all eight hot springs. I visited two, the first one is Kamado Hell it is famous for it steam so hot that can cook the egg. There are foot spa for free. After enjoy the free foot spa I try the egg and the traditional green tea rice cake. The second hell I visited is the Omi hell. The water is blue in colour so it is named Omi (the sea) The steam from the hot spring is so thick that you know how hot the water is. A souvenir centre is next to the Omi hot spring, first floor is selling souvenir, second floor is like a museum display pictures of Omi hot spring and its history. It is worth to take a look around. Although my visit is spoiled by the weather, at least I visited two wonderful hells (hot spring) I am very happy. One thing I feel very interesting is in Beppu you can find smoke are emitted from the ground, in the hillside that I did not find such view in any place yet. This is because of the volcanoes!

It is fascinating to see many different hot springs in such a small area iand it is easy to walk about and visit them using the pass. The most impressive one is the 'bloody' hell . But my kids are a bit bored after visiting three or more hot springs.

These are probably mandatory if you're visiting Beppu. Some of them are very impressive and some are a bit touristy but overall they are well worth visiting/seeing!
