Beppu, located in Oita Prefecture on the southern island of Kyushu, is a city renowned for its hot springs – so much so that it's often referred to as the hot springs capital of Japan.
The onsen is a great place to soak and relax, but another treat is great food made with hot spring water.
Hot springs in Japan, known locally as onsen, are a natural fixture in most parts of Japan that often appear in olden myths and legends about onsen discovery.
