The volume of thermal hot water in Beppu hot springs is the second biggest in the world.
How to see the Nine Hells of Beppu in Fukuoka
Beppu city is called the capital of hot springs of Japan - there are more than 2800 of them on the city territory. Waters of some mineral hot springs reach boiling temperature that's why they are called the Hell of Beppu.

• Umi Jigoku is the first of the Nine Hells. The water here is turquoise, its temperature is 90°C.

• Oniishibozu Jigoku is boiling grey mud with bubbles that resemble heads of Buddhist monks.

• The statue of dragon blowing off steam out of the mouth stands next to Kinryu Jigoku geyser - at sunrise it seems like the dragon is flying up.

• Water in the most popular hot spring of Japan - Chinoike Jigoku - is bright scarlet colour because of big number of iron-bearing minerals and the water temperature reaches 90°C.
