If you have time, why not visit Uchinari Tanada Rice Terraces?
Uchinari Tanada are a spectacular and extensive series of more than 1,000 terraced paddies that recall an older age when rice was planted and harvested by hand. The fields, each irregularly shaped to fit the contours of the hillside, are an especially beautiful sight in early summer, when water first floods the fields, through to harvest in mid-autumn, when the rice is ripened golden under the sun. At the top of the terraces, Sekijozen-ji, a Zen temple, is the source of the water that tumbles down through each paddy throughout the growing season.
We also have wide range of small group sightseeing tours available. For more information, please feel free to contact Experience Japan.

Jigoku Onsen, or Hot Spring Hells, are scaldingly hot and most definitely not for bathing in. However, they are a fascinating attraction. Mostly found in the Kanawa area, there are ten Hells each with their own natural qualities including blood red waters, cobalt blue waters, geysers, and belching mud-pools. The vigour and power that the Hells spew forth from underground is perhaps the most potent symbol of Beppu’s right to take the crown as the hot spring capital of the world.
