  3. Think of the first time you went to a hot spring. When was it? Who did you go with? How was it? Have you ever been back there?
  4. Do you prefer hot springs in the mountains, by the seaside or somewhere else? Why?
  5. How often do you visit hot springs? Tell the class how many times a year you visit hot springs and who with. If you don’t visit hot springs so often, is it because you don’t like them?

Model Answers: Let’s Ask Hana

  1. Beppu, in Oita Prefecture. It is famous for the “Eight Hells of Beppu” onsen. It is also famous for Oniyama Jigoku, or “Monster Mountain Hell”, which keeps crocodiles on the grounds surrounding the hot spring.
  2. Yes, I would. Beppu’s “Eight Hells” are some of the most famous hot springs in Japan. I would also like to see the crocodiles of Oniyama Jigoku.
  3. I honestly can’t remember the first time I went to a hot spring. One of my best memories though is of going to Minoh Onsen Spa Garden with my family. It was a little crowded but the baths were excellent.
  4. I prefer hot springs by the seaside. I like to enjoy the outdoor baths at night and look out at all the stars over the ocean.
  5. I enjoy hot springs as much as the next person but I really only visit them when I go on vacation. That means I only go maybe once or twice a year. I would like to go more often if I have the opportunity in the future.
  6. I would highly recommend going to Minoh Onsen Spa Garden. From memory, it’s a bit expensive and there will probably be a lot of people there but it is well worth it.
