日の出温泉 (Hinode Onsen)
|6:30 till 24:00
The second onsen — after Matsubara — we visited this Friday night was Hinode Onsen. There are a few parking spots, but we parked at Youme Town and walked to Hamawaki. It takes about ten minutes.

Coincidentally the same thing happened as in Matsubara Onsen: I was warned again that I was sitting at the hot end of the bath. The man who warned was very friendly. Of course he was interested where I came from. Beppu has many international students, so people usually think I came to study. It is nice to have a chat with the locals sometimes.
