Relax by the boiling Umi Jigoku water

Beppu's "hells"  are seven amazing viewing hot springs. 

The water is a truly beautiful cobalt blue, which is rare even amongst Japanese hot springs. The reason for the blue color of the water is its naturally high levels of iron sulfate, meaning that it is entirely natural and not a result of coloring.

Five of the hells are in the county of Kannawa and two in the more distant area of Shibasaki. One of the most lovely "hells", a pond of boiling, blue water features the "sea hell." There are a few smaller orange hells in its spacious gardens and a clear water pond with lotus flowers whose big leaves are powerful enough to hold tiny kids.
