The City of Hot Springs - Beppu, Oita Prefecture -

Venetia loves hot springs and visits the spa city of Beppu in Oita Prefecture, famed for its billowing steam, to recuperate at the Kannawa springs. The inn mistress shows her how the steam from the springs is used in the ovens known as Jigoku-gama - literally, cauldrons from hell. They set off straight away together to purchase ingredients, starting at the fishmonger, steam their fresh fish and vegetables in the Jigoku-gama and then share the repast with other guests who have also come for the medicinal benefits of the springs. Bamboo craftsmen use the Jigoku-gama, too. Venetia visits a workshop to see the traditional Beppu bamboo crafts and even has a go at making something herself.
