Day 6 - Chi-no-ike Jigoku (Blood Pond)

Beppu has a total of 8 Jigoku or hells, so called because of its high temperature! The guide only brought us to one hot spring hell - Chi-no-ike Jigoku (Blood Pond) and it was only one miserable pond! It looked more brown than red. The "hells" (地獄, jigoku) of Beppu are hot springs for viewing (too hot!!) rather than bathing. This hot spring was small and was a disappointment. There was a foot bath but it was way too hot!

Many houses and homes piped in the hot spring water and have their own hot springs. It is a smoking town or city!
