These eight boiling pools resulting from volcanic activity have varying characteristics: one is blood-red in color due to its red clay deposits, another has the largest geyser in Japan, and still another is used for breeding crocodiles.

We joined a tour as time was limited and the bus stop was right outside our hotel. I don't think I'd bother again as the guide only spoke Japanese (which we knew in advance) and actually it would not be too difficult to go by...More

Once you are there, there are many Hells you can visit, U either pay 2000Yens for all the hells or 400Yens for each. I personally find they are basically the same. I visited the "Sea of Hell" which is the biggest. Not too bad but...More

Visiting all the Hells is not as hard as it first seems. I'd recommend buying the Hell day pass as well as the bus day pass. There are directions at each hell to show you how to proceed to the next one. The easiest way...More
