Footbaths in the hells

The hells(Jigoku) are very popular sightseeing places in Beppu. They are spectacular hot springs for viewing rather than bathing. People can enjoy observing eight different natural phenomena there.

Some hells have unique footbaths beside main spots in the sites. People sit down and put their feet and legs into hot water to help ease fatigue after walking.
