Located in Oita prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Beppu is one of Japan’s most famous hot spring resorts, producing more hot spring water than any other resort in the country.
A coastal town, Beppu is backed by mountains which has led to its development along the coast: while not very large, it is rather long. Most of the most well-known hot springs (onsen) and the tourist attractions, including most of the Jigoku or “hells”, are in the Kannawa area which is on the far side of the city from the train station.
