    Getting to the hells

    by IreneMcKay Updated Jun 23, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you arrive at Beppu Train Station, you can exit on the mountainside and you are right next to the bus stop to the hells. Each journey to the hells will cost around 320 to 340 yen.

    You take a ticket when you board the bus. This tells you the stop number you started at. The price from each starting point will be displayed on a panel at the front of the bus. As you exit the bus you put your paper and the correct change into the driver's box. For the first group of hells board any bus that goes to Kannawa for example bus 2,7,5,41,43 and 9. You can catch bus number 16 from Kannawa to the other two hells as well.

    If you want to do several journeys or just don't want to mess around with lots of change, you can buy a day ticket for 900 yen; 700 for students. On this ticket you will be able to visit all the hells. You can buy the day ticket from the tourist office in Beppu Station. You can pick up a bus route map from the tourist office whether you buy a day ticket or not.

    The Kamenoi mini free bus pass can be purchased for 900 yen (700 for students) from the tourist information centres. It allows you to travel on all blue buses for free in the day it is stamped for. If you want to see all the 8 major jigoku, then this bus pass makes travel to and from the sites cheaper. It also means you can visit other onsens outside on Beppu central for free on the same day.

    Most people reach Beppu by...

    Most people reach Beppu by train or by car. Closest airports are near Fukuoka, where also the Shinkansen stops, before you get on a local Kyushu-train. As Beppu is situated at the coastline, some might enter it's harbour.
    If you're a good walker, you can bridge the distances between the various Jigoku. Otherwise you can take the bustour that is organised from the tourist-information-office downtown.

    The best way to travel in...

    by bennieofzo Written Nov 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to travel in Japan is by train. Foreigners can buy a railpass for 1, 2 or 3 weeks and will cover almost all of japan. You have to buy this railpass in your own country via your travelagent. The 'shinkansen' (bullettrain) will take you fast and easy to your destinations.
    Take good shoes and walk, and sometimes a bus.
