My boyfriend and I went to Tanayu Onsen in the Suginoi Palace. Suginoi Hotel has three buildings and the onsen is in the Palace building. They offer a free shuttle from Beppu Station to the hotel every 15 minutes. Look for a purple mini van in a parking lot on the right hand side of the west gate exit if... More

I made a mistake, and it was called Beppu. I came to Beppu after two nights in Kurokawa Onsen, which was a quaint and charming town with well-kept onsens and a friendly atmosphere. Contrast Beppu, which is run down, depressing, and, at least when I was there, strangely empty. Whoever is writing that Beppu is a leading Japanese hot springs... More

Enjoyed the jigoku tour where you visit several hot springs which have different colours and characters of their own. The hotels in the area however is less impressive than that of the ones in the kurokawa precinct. Would recommend coming here for the scenery but not hot spring. Go to Mt Aso and its surroundings for real hot spring pampering.... More

So many color in one picture, amazing place. Just about the sakura season, very beautiful. Foot spa corner, you could have a feet spa for free, and if you do not have towel with you, could buy a towel by automat.

The onsen were very interesting and made some great pictures. However, their charm was completely overshadowed by the disgust I felt on seeing the animals in the small, run-down zoo in Yama Jigoku and Oni Jigoku. All the animals were on their own, with very little space to move around, and no enrichment whatsoever. The animals seemed to be in... More

I don't usually write reviews but thought it was necessary to add a positive English review - it would be a huge shame for visitors to Kyushu to miss out on this onsen resort. There are about 100 onsens in total so you'd be hard pressed to not find some ones for you. There are the incredible hotel onsen spas... More

I am an onsen freak. I love them. My idea of a good holiday is going to Japan and visiting my favourite or a new bath everyday. I was rather excited about visiting Beppu. We'd stayed in Kurokawa Onsen the night before as our splurge for the holiday and then went onto Beppu with anticipation. We drove through Yufuin but... More
