Featured Experience on our Southern Japan Tours vacation series.

The Tour of Hell along the Kannawa area is one of the most popular attractions for sightseeing in the Beppu Spa. While Beppu is typically appreciated for their hot-springs waters and sand bathing along the scenic beach shores, the hot-spring town also draws numerous travelers to see the famous Hell Ponds. While the water in Beppu is normally appreciated for it's relaxing qualities, the water at the various Hell's (地獄, jigoku) are intended for sightseeing thanks to the unique properties not found at other resorts. Each pond has various properties making them worth exploring after a day of soaking in the waters of the hot-springs town.
