Discover the neighborhoods of Yufu


Yufu is a city known for its hot spring resorts. It is located in the Oita Prefecture, right in the center, and very close to Beppu. Yufu could be visited as a day trip from this nearby city, but for those seeking a relaxing getaway, Yufu is the ideal choice with its thermal waters and beautiful rural landscapes. Arriving in the city is done via bus, car, or by taking a train via Yufuin Station.

Yufu’s biggest attractions are the hot springs, most notably found in the Yufuin district. The amount of water here is said to be the second largest in Japan, so there should be plenty for everyone. An information office is located in the train station and provides a detailed walking map to check out the best areas. Earn your time in the waters with a climb up the double-peaked Yufu-dake volcano that overlooks the city. Walking through the town is also a worthy endeavor, and so too is a visit to sites such as Yufuin Basin and Lake Kinrin. The Yufu Highland Museum, the shopping and dining at Yunotsubo Kaido, and the family-friendly Yufuin Trickart Meikyukan all add to the pleasures of a stay in this charming destination.
