Hotel Sea Wave is located just across Beppu Station, the main gateway for entering and exiting the beautiful city of Beppu by train. Its onsen is perhaps the most conveniently located onsen in the city. The onsen is suitable for both arriving and departing tourists because of its proximity to the train station.

The outdoor bath is by far the biggest highlight of the onsen. Bamboo and indigenous trees surround the bath, a rare feat because the onsen is located at the heart of the city. As if that is not enough, the bath is an architectural marvel! They constructed it using natural rocks, indicating how close connected Beppu is with nature.

Being away from home can sometimes be stressful. Often, I have found exploring onsen to be one way of dealing with this homesickness. In one of my onsen adventures, I decided to visit the Hotel Sea Wave mainly because of its proximity to the station. Upon arriving at the hotel reception, I was met by some friendly hotel staff. I made all the payment formalities and they gently accompanied me to the onsen facility, which is located on the second floor of the hotel. I was provided with amenities that included a bath towel, face towel, bath form, and shower shampoo at no additional cost.
In the indoor pool, I found myself being in the company of an elderly Japanese man, a French doctor, a South Korean poet and two American traveling compatriots. I soon discovered that the elderly Japanese man was an “onsen master,” an honorary title given to onsen loyalists. The diverse group of people I met at the onsen made me feel comfortable and reminded that Japan is a true cultural melting pot or “a home away from home.”.
After exchanging pleasantries with my newly found friends, I moved to the outdoor pool. The unique atmosphere of the outdoor pool captured me immediately. It was a blend of nature and natural hot spring topped up by some breezy fresh air. My experience at Hotel Sea Wave is a story I will continue to tell. Despite offering only one outdoor and one indoor pool, the experience I had was unmatched. I managed to meet 5 new friends of different nationalities 12,000 kilometers away from home, I experienced mother nature at the heart of the city and to put the icing on the cake, I managed to have a truly remarkable Beppu Onsen experience. Everyone visiting Beppu should not miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime.
If you come to Beppu as a traveler, you can also book your stay at the hotel. Depending on the type of room you book you may be able to access the onsen without any additional costs. Enjoy this Japanese unique onsen experience.
