I love visiting Japan.

Japan has a wealth of unusual hot springs -- some that you can bathe in and others that are just fun to visit. Blogger Greg has written a comprehensive blog on this topic alone.

"You can't really go to Beppu without seeing the hells (themed hot springs). There are several, but we ended up going to Umi Jigoku (Sea Hell) and Shiraike Jigoku (White pond Hell).
