Featured Experience on our Southern Japan Tours vacation series.
Beppu is a popular hot-springs resort town located in the central part of Oita, along the coast of Beppu Bay. Next to hot springs town of Hakone, Beppu is easily one of Japan's most famous hot-spring resorts, producing more thermal hot spring water than any other resort in Japan. Thanks to the constant stream of hot water spread around the city, Beppu onsen offers eight hot spring areas in addition to mud baths, sand baths, and steam baths. While walking around the hot-springs town, there are multiple free foot baths often situated close to an Onsen entrance, giving guests a sample of what kind of waters to expect inside. Like many of the most popular hot-spring towns in Japan, Beppu offers a wide range of baths for tour participants to enjoy during their stay in the city.
In addition to hot-springs guests can relax in, the Hells of Beppu are several spectacular hot springs renowned for their beauty and unique properties. The Tour of Hell is considered the highlight of sightseeing when visiting Beppu Spa, split between 8 spots. Our line of Southern Japan tours and grand tour packages will visit these Hells, including the Umi-jigoku (sea hell) made up of bright cobalt blue hot water, the Chi-no-ike-jigoku (blood pond hell) that gushes out hot water mixed with melted red clay, and the Tatsumaki-jigoku (tornado hell), a geyser that sprays out a massive stream of volcanic waters.
Experience the fiery Tour of Hell first hand in Beppu during any of our fully-escorted Southern Japan Tours or Grand Tour Packages available year-round! You can also hire your own personal tour guide for a private Japan tour through the highlights of Kyushu with our luxurious custom vacation options!
