As the name says, this is a bright red hot spring which brims with hell. The pond itself is quite large with a depth of more than 30 meters and a width of 1,300 square meters, and the appearance of the steam rising up is a spectacle. Red hot mud which contains such metals as iron oxide and magnesium oxide from the stratum jet out and deposit, resulting in the pond gets dyed red due to the deposited material. There is an adjoining restaurant where you can taste the Beppu specialty of steaming hell and Oita’s local cuisine. There is also a footbath. The hot spring has been designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty.
