As we wrote in the Beppu post, one of the main attractions of this city of Kyushu is the Jigoku Meguri tour. These are scattered around the city.

Six of them up north, in the District of Kannawa:

  • Umi Jigoku ("sea hell")
  • Oniishibozu ("monk head")
  • Shiraike ("white lake")
  • Kamado ("caldron")
  • Oniyama ("demon mountain")
  • Yama ("mountain")

...and two more near the coast, in Shibaseki:

  • Chinoike ("blood pond")
  • Tatsumaki ("geyser")

These very special onsen ♨️ each have specific benefits, but you can not swim in them. Their temperatures frequently exceed 100°C. However everyone can admire them, or buy salt or soap created on their basis, which are exported worldwide, mainly in organic products shops.

To accompany the original post and its pictures, here is a video montage of these very characteristics onsen to visit. Hopefully this can help you feel the warmth and ambience that emerge from these unique places.
