You can also see the display of Kurokodairu Ichiro crocodile raised in the past. Ichiro died at the age of 71 and was the oldest crocodile raised in Oniyama Jigoku.
Shiraike Jigoku (White Pond Hell)
Shirake means white pond in Japanese, even though the color is bluer.
This pond features a hot and milky white color and smoke due to the reaction between boric acid, salt, sodium silicate, and calcium bicarbonate.
Tatsumaki Jigoku (Spout hell)
Last on this list is Tatsumaki Jigoku. This hell is next to Chinoike Jigoku and you may skip it if you don’t have much time.
There is a very strong geyser and it sprays every 30 min for around 10 min, so you have to sit and wait until it does. It was quite dull in my opinion.
What to eat on the Beppu Hell Tour
After the Hells Tour, what do you think about a hell-steamed meal?
“Hell-steam” cuisine is a local specialty of Beppu onsen. This delicious and healthy cooking method uses the fumes of the hot spring, so high-temperature steam allows the food to be steamed up all in one go.
