Introducing Beppu - With 120 million liters of onsen water gushing out of 2,217 wells every day, Beppu deserves its reputation as a world leader for onsen bathing. Flowing beneath the city are seven of the 10 types of mineral-rich onsen water in existence, each with its own distinct healing benefits. The rejuvenating properties of Beppu's hot springs have been known for centuries. An ancient Japanese legend speaks of a mythical god, Okuni Nushino Mikoto, who built a pipe to carry the healing onsen water from Beppu to Ehime, more than 150 km away, to cure the ailing god Sukunahiko. In the 13th century, a samurai, Yoriyasu Otomo, built sanatoriums in Beppu for warriors who had been wounded during the Mongolian invasions. True to its status as an onsen destination, many of Beppu's attractions are centered around its hot spring heritage. From more traditional public baths to the high-end onsen at Japanese inns, Beppu boasts more than 200 bathing facilities. Give your skin the chance to experience all the benefits of the various water types in the region.
