Beppu is located in the central part of Oita, on the coast of Beppu Bay faces the sea, with Mt. Tsurumi
and the rest of the Tsurumi Volcanoes in the rear. Hot water gushes at many spots in the city. Beppu ranks first
in gush volume in Japan and is in a high place in the world in the number of sources and the variety of chemical
properties. Beppu offers an unmatched range of baths to be enjoyed, including ordinary hot water baths, mud baths, sand baths and steam baths.
The Beppu-onsen Spa consists of eight hot spring areas including Hamawaki, Beppu, Kankaiji, Myoban
and Kannawa, which are collectively called "Beppu Hatto". In addition, there are many modern spa resorts also
supplied from the rich sources in those areas.
