Beppu hell holes

When you're in Beppu, you not only must visit the various onsen and indulge in a bath, but you must also take a walking tour of the gigoku meguri, or hell holes. Those are the natural hotspring sites, which you can't go into because they're burning hot, but they're very interesting to observe and each one is very different in its own way. There are a total of eight on the tour, and it takes about two and a half hours on foot to see them all. Check them out.
