Anyway, I will introduce you the unique 8 Jigokus in Beppu city because you are still alive....

UMI JIGOKU
(SEA HELL)

So called because it resembles the sea, this 200 meter deep, cobalt-blue pond of boiling water emerged 1200 years ago after a volcanic explosion.
The manicured gardens are simply magnificient. And from May to November you can marvel at the gigantic " Victoria Amazonica " lotus flowers grown in hot spring waters.

CHINOIKE JIGOKU
(BLOOD POND HELL)

This is the oldinst natural "Jigoku" in Japan!
At first site the blood red pond awakens a shudder. Fear not. This awesome pond takes its formidable color from red clay that dessolves in the natural, boiling hot spring waters.

SHIRAIKE JIGOKU
(WHITE POND HELL)

The white pond hell is so called because the colourless water that naturally spouts from te ground mysteriously turns creamy white. The serene atmosphare of the traditional Japanese garden is sure to soothe your mind.

TATSUMAKI JIGOKU
(GEYSER HELL)

This is the site of amaging intermittent spring. Every 25 minutes a natural gust of water shoots abput 20 meters in the air. The boiling water are used to raise tropical plants.

KAMADO JIGOKU
(COOKING POT HELL)

I am standing on an enormous cooking pot. I am the mascot of this hot spring site, temptingly divided into six unique, pots of murky, bobbling, " thunping " boiling water.

ONIYAMA JIGOKU
(DEMON HILL HELL)

The force of the stream produced at this spring can pull one and a half train cars. This " hellish " site is the happy home of a variety of crocodiles and alligators who slither down into the warm breeding waters. They are all my pets !!

KINRYU JIGOKU
(GOLDEN DRAGON HELL)

An impressible golden dragon stands as a guard at this spring. Here you can have a " devilish cocktail " of hot spring water with bamboo-spilit cups, enjoy images of deities from the Oriental calender,, as well as a hot house full of tropical plants.

YAMA JIGOKU
(MOUNTAIN HELL)

A gust of stream clears to reveal prancing lions, bathing hippos and curious chimpanzees. Taking its name from the mountain of mud formed over the year, this "Jigoku" is also a mini zoo which children can surely enjoy.
