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.

Jigoku hells in Beppu are more colourful and have more characteristics than those at Noboribetsu. If you want to, you can have lunch at the Jigoku Mushi Koubou Kannawa where the food is cooked by steam from the hells, and then have an onsen bath...More

The hot springs are interesting to look at, for sure. Didn't do all 8 of the Hell Springs since after a while it seemed repetitive (even though they had different colors and features).

This small has many different hot springs or Hells as they are called here. Each one has a different color or characteristic, so it's fun to visit all of them.
