Beppu to Kumamoto – 3 June 2017

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 12.08.55 PMDriving back through middle today to Kumamoto to catch ferry onto Nagasaki.  We had a couple of stops on the way of course! Besides being famous for its onsens Beppu is also famous for its “Hells”.  These are spectacular hot pools, boiling mud and geysers which make up the “8 Hells” of Beppu.  More info here.  These hells are not for swimming and are now mostly a tourist attraction and you do have to pay to enter.  To make it more interesting they’ve added a few animals!

Then off to Kurokawa Village for lunch.  Another very traditional village.  After this had a quick photo stop overlooking Mount Asa.  Kurokawa village so quaint and we all loved it here.  Little windy cobblestoned streets and alleys.
