Beppu is a city in Ooita Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Japan.
Famous for its visually stunning hot springs (The Hells of Beppu), Beppu is one of Japan's Three Great Hot Springs.
Beppu's top sight are the eight hells, multicolored volcanic pits of boiling water and mud, and one geyser. The hells are too hot to be diluted into onsen, and they emerge at temperatures ranging from 50 to 99.5 °C (122 to 210 °F). Some of the hells have a natural smell of sulfur, which comes out a bit like rotten eggs.
