Explore Beppu’s Kannawa Hotspring Town with a legendary local guide!
There is a special place in Japan that is well known for its numerous hot springs. It is where steam envelops the town in a dream-like atmosphere.
Beppu City has around 2,300 vents that emanate from its 8 major hot springs. Beppu’s hot springs are also called jigogu or hell because of its open pools of boiling hot spring water. These are hot enough to boil eggs and sweet potatoes. In fact, small corner shops sell them to visitors to try. These pools are also a feast for the eyes with hues ranging from cobalt blue to blood red. Kannawa hot spring is especially famous for its healing baths that contains alum used in treating various skin conditions.
