Calm down. There is nothing burning in this picture. As I mentioned in my previous article, Beppu, which is located in Oita, is famous for hot spring. Having hot spring in a town naturally means there exists a source which makes hot water. This hot water makes a steam all over this town and that’s why now we can see a picture like this. In this article, we will look for famous hot spring that many tourists visit every year.

There are 7 hell hot springs only in Beppu. If you wish to look around all 7 hells the entrance fee becomes JPY 2,000 per person. It costs JPY 400 if you visit only one hell. The most famous hell is the one called ‘Kamado’ and some tourists who do not have enough time to spend in Beppu choose to visit Kamado only.
(1) Kamado Jigoku

The reason why here is called as ‘hell'(Jigoku) is because of extremely hot temperature of its water. The color of water is also different from the original one, which is usually thought to be transparent, since clay of the rocks melted by the heat. Kamado hell itself is divided into 7 places; however, it is not very big so it won’t take a lot of time to look around all places.
There are things that may attract your eyes other than hot spring while traveling Kamado Jigoku. As you can find out from its name, which is hell, there are statues of Japanese goblins. Entering hot spring is strictly forbidden because it can cause you a serious injury or may lead to death. You will be able to find a place where you can have some snacks during your journey in Kamado hell. The small store sells Japanese soda and steamed eggs. You may try both of them.
(2) Shiraike Jigoku

Shiraike Jigoku is the hell which is located near to the bus stop. This hell is very mysterious because the water is colored with white and blue. It is said that the water itself is transparent; however, it changes its color once it comes into pond due to temperature and pressure issue. You can also see a traditional Japanese style garden with Japanese house. This milky colored water makes pretty much warm atmosphere. There also is a small aquarium in Shiraike Jigoku. This aquarium uses the heat from hot spring to raise some types of tropical fish.
(3) Oniyama Jigoku
Oniyama Jigoku is also called as ‘crocodile hell’. The reason is simple. You can see a lot of crocodiles in Oniyama Jigoku. If you want to look back into a history it goes back to 1923. In 1923, Japan started raise crocodiles by using the steam of hot spring. Now there are 70 crocodiles in this place and there are also scheduled times when you can see feeding crocodiles.
(4) Oniishibozu Jigoku

In Oniishibozu Jigoku, which means monk’s bald head, you will be able to see a mud boiling with circle shape. And this is why here is called as monk’s bald head as well. Oniishibozu Jigoku has very long history, since it was introduced as popular tour spot during Meiji period. Japan closed this place in late 1950s; however, it was opened to public in 2002 again.
(5) Umi Jigoku

The water of Umi Jigoku features cobalt blue color. Despite its beautiful color, the temperature of this water goes up to 98 degrees. Formed 1200 years ago, it also has a long history as well. In Umi Jigoku, you can see tropical trees and plants which are raised by using the steam and heat of water.
(6) Chinoike Jigoku
‘Chi’ means ‘blood’ in English. As you can check out from the picture, Chinoke Jigoku means the hell of blood. Don’t worry. Nothing is real blood in this place. Some chemical reactions make the color of water become ‘red’. They also sell a cream which is good for skin diseases.
(7) Tatsumaki Jigoku

More than 150 degree water is being spewed in Tatsumaki Jigoku. In every 30-40 minutes, the hot water is being spewed for about 6 minutes. If you have enough time it is also good to spend some time in this place since there is a garden with beautiful flowers.
