How About A Relaxing Stroll In A Traditional Japanese Town In The Yufuin Onsen Resort in Kyushu?

Yufuin Onsen 湯布院温泉
Yufuin is a gorgeous area surrounded by mountains. The view is particularly beautiful because of Mount Yufu's twin peaks.
Also, there is a beautiful lake beside Mount Yufu called Lake Kirinko. You can walk there from the station, and you will find a shrine and some public baths.
Yufuin is located close to a much larger and busier onsen area called Beppu. So if you're looking for a beautiful onsen resort area that is slightly less touristic, you should try Yufuin!
The daytime admission fee varies from 500-800 yen.
There is even a very old bathhouse that is gender mixed and doesn't have a separated changing area. If you're game to give it a try, it's only 200 yen!
How to get there
Whereas by train, it would take up to 6 hours. Although it is a long trip, you would get to see a lot of Japanese scenery.
From Beppu, you can take a bus which will take you from Beppu to Yufuin, or a train from the same stations. The trip by bus is quicker and cheaper, however, the train trip is covered by the JR rail pass if you purchased it.
