You don't have to look far in Beppu (別府), in Ōita Prefecture, to see the reason for its popularity: steam rising from vents in the earth means there are onsen bathing opportunities galore. Beppu is at turns quaint, touristy, modern, traditional, solid and rickety, but the charm of this hilly, hospitable city grows on visitors as sure as the waters are warm. Winter visitors get the seasonal treat of seeing the entire town filled with warm, escaping steam.
