We bought a 3 day northern Kyushu pass and did a daytrip from Fukuoka to Beppu. We could have got there direct in about 2 hours by taking the train from Fukuoka towards Miyazaki Airport, but we decided to go to Kumamoto then take the train to Beppu via Aso as we thought the scenery would be beautiful, and it was. The train from Kumamoto to Beppu takes three hours but it was a lovely ride. Trains on this route are infrequent.
Although it took a long time the local train from Kumamoto to Beppu was clean and comfortable and the scenery was great. Because we took the long way there we only had a couple of hours in Beppu. We took a bus to Kannawa from Beppu Station and visited Beppu's famous hells. There are also lots of onsens and sand baths. I thought Beppu was pretty good.
In October 2011 we were fortunate enough to revisit Beppu. This time we stayed overnight and had a happy and healthy time complete with lots of spas! During this longer stay we visited 3 more of Beppu's hells as well as Beppu's beaches, a spa and Beppu Tower.
