Beppu (別府) is one of Japan’s most famous hot spring resorts, producing more hot spring water than any other resort in the country.

Beppu offers an unmatched range of baths to be enjoyed, including ordinary hot water baths, mud baths, sand baths and steam baths. In addition, the Hells of Beppu are several spectacular hot springs for viewing rather than bathing.

Welcomed to pamper my hands just outside Beppu Station! ^

Saw this statue of Mr Kumahachi Aburaya just outside the station. He is the “father of Beppu tourism” ! Thank you for beautiful Beppu! 😀 P1250324

What I really like about Kyushu is that there really isn’t much people walking around. I LOVE!! 😛 I feel so relaxed without the need to walk fast and squeeze with people!P1250327

You really hardly see people walking around! I should have taken more OOTDS. LOL!  P1250330

In Beppu, you will just see many many Onsens and don’t even look like one. HAHA! I wish I stay here so I can visit all the onsens!!!

Simple small Cinema Theater that doesn’t look like those fancy ones in Singapore!P1250331

Saw a Tengu Shrine in the market street.

Tengu were often described as protectors of freedom and sovereignity in Japan. In 1688 there was a huge fire in Beppu, and this has led to the construction of many shrines to protect the villagers from further grief.

After exploring a little, it is time for the main highlight of our trip to Beppu. ONSEN!!!!!!!!!

There are many famous Onsens but the one we chose is Takegawra Onsen!

Built in 1879, Takegawara Spa is Beppu’s oldest and most famous bath house, offering sand and regular baths in an atmosphere of the old days! The entrance fee is just 100yen! P1250356

We managed to small talk with some kind Obaasan. (^_^) The onsen is super hot.. Omgosh… Haha!!! By the way, it is situated just next a red light district~
