Beppu Onsen, Hells of Beppu "Ippen Shonin's Hot Spring"

Beppu is one of Japan's best hot spring towns. Today, the multi-colored springs of the Hells of Beppu are a major tourist destination, but once upon a time they were feared as a hellish landscape attracting evil and death. It is said that the monk Ippen Shonin calmed the boiling water of the hot spring using his Shinto and Buddhist faith.

"Doors to explore 'NIPPON'", a special program that showcases scenes hand-picked from NHK's "SHIN NIHON FUDOKI", a show that conveys the beautiful scenery and profound culture of Japan, is screened on five TV monitors installed in the departure area of Haneda Airport.
