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.

Visited the red and black pools as only have a couple of hours to spare. Touristy but interesting. Footbaths are available for those who do not want to go for the onsen but remember to bring a small towel for drying your feet.

The hells are worth a visit. We made a day trip from Fukuoka to Beppu to visit the hells and got into a bit of a hurry at the end- we were thrown out of the last hell at 5 pm- Mind the closing time!...More

Jigoku hells in Beppu are more colourful and have more characteristics than those at Noboribetsu. If you want to, you can have lunch at the Jigoku Mushi Koubou Kannawa where the food is cooked by steam from the hells, and then have an onsen bath...More

It's a must to get a ticket for all 7 hells. There used to be 8, the small (petting) zoo was a part of the tour before, but according to the note on the window at the entrance, it no longer belongs there so it's...More

The hot springs are interesting to look at, for sure. Didn't do all 8 of the Hell Springs since after a while it seemed repetitive (even though they had different colors and features).

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
