Unzen Hell is a famous tourist destination within Unzen Hot Springs, chosen as the number one hot springs in Kyushu by tourists from around the world. It is located in Japan’s first national park, Unzen-Amakusa National Park. The area is covered in the aroma of sulfur, steam billowing from underground, and steam clouds hovering around, making it look like a scene from hell.
Visitors can explore on foot around 30 different hells free of charge, including Daikyokan Hell, Ohimo Hell, and Seishichi Hell. There is also a monument dedicated to those who martyred, which appeared in the opening scene of the movie Silence.
