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.
