Unzen Jigoku

The area between Koyu and Shinyu covered in white soil (solfataric soil) is the Unzen Jigoku area.In Buddhist teachings, Jigoku (hell) is where people are punished for their evil deeds that they committed in the past life. With extremely high temperature hot springs and gasses erupting from everywhere, among the strong smell of sulfur and billowing steam, indeed conjures images of the fearsome Jigoku.
