Hells of Beppu: Shibaseki District

The Shibaseki District is one of the two sites where the Hells of Beppu are located, the other being the Kannawa District. Two Hells are located in this district. The nicest, in my opinion, is Chinoike Jigoku “blood pond hell”. It is tought by some to be the most photogenic of all Hells. The other one, Tatsumaki Jigoku, is a geyser that erupts at a regular time interval (twice per hour).

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
