Umi Jigoku is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Beppu. It’s usually open during the daytime, but this time, it also opens at night for a special event! ‘Yoru’ itself means night.
Right as you enter, you can see a lot of illuminations decorating the place. The entrance is different from the one you usually take if you go during the daytime.
As you go along the route, you can see more varieties of illuminations. They will also play audio about the story of the little demon that has no friends and is about to set on a journey to find one.
Overall, it’s a very short attraction. For 900 yen, I think the price is quite steep. However, I think it’s still worth going to experiencing it the first time. You can barely see the main attraction of the onsen, but I guess the illumination here is the main thing.
I know my pictures don’t do justice. So please go and experience it yourself when you get the chance!
If you want to see what Umi Jigoku looks like during the daytime, I have made a separate post about it two years ago.
