These eight boiling pools resulting from volcanic activity have varying characteristics: one is blood-red in color due to its red clay deposits, another has the largest geyser in Japan, and still another is used for breeding crocodiles.

Very interesting to go around the 5 hell of hot springs. Good is not too crowded and all spots are nearby.

We took the Shinkansen (bullet train) down from Tokyo, then took the local train to tour the area of the Hells (Hot Springs). Japanese people are so polite, they are an example to the rest of us.
