Explore the Beppu Hells if you would like to see another side of onsen culture!
The jigoku are for viewing, by the way, not for bathing in, since they can reach temperatures of about 98 degrees Celsius.
One of the most beautiful hell, the "sea hell" features a pond of boiling blue water. The "cooking pot hell" features several boiling ponds and a flashy demon statue as cook. Literally meaning hell-steaming, jigoku mushi is a traditional way of cooking using the steam of a hot spring. It dates back to the 17th century and is a healthy way to prepare food while also enhancing its dramatic flavour.
