I vistited Beppu, the hot spring capital of Japan, in 2002. The whole city is basically running on hot steam. Nine of the hot springs are also known as Hells, which offer unlimited tourist fun.
Now today, eons after my visit, I received an e-mail from Beppu, letting me know that the Beppu city administration has installed a webcam. So cute:
We are very pleased to inform you that you can now observe hot springs steam. (…) We hope that you enjoy the scenery of Beppu-Kannawa Onsen, from time to time, through the Live -Camera available 24 hours a day.
Want to go back right now!
