Unzen Jigoku

 

Jigoku, means Hell, is the number one attraction of Unzen 
with a peculiar smell of sulfur emitted from the springs, and 
with white smoke rising from the ground over a wide area.

This is a striking reminder that Unzen Volcano is still 
very much alive.


 

These springs are highly valued by Japanese even now 
as according to Buddhist teaching, “If you live in a bad
manner, you cannot go to Paradise, but rather, you will fall 
into the Hell of agony”.

Unfortunately, this was once put into reality nearly 350 years
ago during the time of religious persecution in Japan.

 

 30 Japanese Christians, failing to renounce their faith met 
 their death here in the scalding spring of Jigoku.
