Beppu Jigokus. Jigokus or "Hells" are famous hot springs in Beppu, Japan, that are popular tourist attractions. In the upper left is Umi Jigoku (Sea Hell) so called because this jigoku looks like the sea, which emerged after an explosion of a volcano 1,200 years ago and because the color of the boiling water of the pond is cobalt-blue. Chinoike Jigoku (Blood Pond Hell) is the oldest natural jigoku in Japan, and the pond is bloodred in color. In the lower left is Bozu Jigoku (Bonze Hell) which is formed about 470 years ago when a severe earthquake occurred resulting in an eruption under a temple. Hotta is a well site (left on the lake) for the district heating system. The wells require daily reaming to remove scale build up.
