Hell Spa

On Tuesday we went for a drive to volcanic Mt Aso and Jigoku Onsen ("Hell Spa")... Here's a Google Map link of the area. Unfortunately it was very cloudy so we couldn't see the volcano, but here's a photo I found on the web. This page has the onsen's official photos. It was an interesting onsen - very sulphurous smell, and several baths separated by short walks. We soaked for about 2 hours all up...

That's not a low cloud, it's steam rising from the mountain
