City of Beppu別府市

The City of Beppu in Oita Prefecture. This city is most famous for having the largest quantity of underground hot springs. Consider it a spa resort town. With over 300 areas from which the water flows out the city and residential homes are full of incredible sources of hot springs. Multiple health benefits are touted from these waters. Our recommendation is that you stay for an extended period of time, visiting the onsens that offer a variety of these mineral-rich waters.
