You don’t have to look far in Beppu (別府) to see the reason for its popularity: steam rising from vents in the earth means there are onsen-bathing opportunities galore. Beppu is by turns quaint and touristy, modern and traditional, solid and rickety, but the charm of this hilly, hospitable city grows on visitors as sure as the waters are balmy. Winter visitors get the seasonal treat of seeing the entire town filled with warm escaping steam.
As a volcanically active country, Japan has thousands of natural geothermal baths scattered throughout all of its major islands. Visit a traditional onsen (an outdoor hot spring with bathing facilities) or a sentō (a public bath house) and experience a great and very relaxing way to bathe and take a sauna.
In Jigokudani Monkey Park you can watch wild Japanese macaques, more commonly referred to as snow monkeys, lounging in an open-air onsen. The name Jigokudani, meaning "Hell's Valley", is due to the steam and boiling water that bubbles out of the frozen ground. The animals go to the valley during the winter to sit in the warm hot springs.
