With 120 million litres of onsen water gushing out of 2,217 wells every day, Beppu deserves its reputation as a world leader for onsen bathing. Flowing beneath the city are seven of the 10 types of mineral-rich onsen water in existence, each with their own distinct healing benefits.
The rejuvenating properties of Beppu’s hot springs have been known for centuries. An ancient Japanese legend speaks of a mythical god, Okuni Nushino Mikoto, who built a pipe to carry the healing onsen water from Beppu to Ehime, more than 150 km away, in order to cure the ailing god Sukunahiko. In the 13th century, a samurai, Yoriyasu Otomo, built sanatoriums in Beppu for warriors who had been wounded during the Mongolian invasions.
