    Interestingly, this gelato shop is open from 3:00 p.m. to midnight. The shop offers around 26 varieties of gelato at any given time. Many of its flavors are only available for a limited time, and one of its biggest draws is the fact that you can discover flavors only offered during that time of year. You can choose either a single scoop or large serving in either a cone or a cup, while double scoops only come in a cone. In addition, there are several flavors which can only be ordered as a single scoop. The shop also sells assortment boxes with several flavors that you can take home with you.

    Oita Pref. Yufushi Yufuinchoukawakami 2633-1
    A souvenir shop operated by the Kamenoi Besso high class inn in Yufuin, Yufu City, Oita Prefecture which sells signature foods and locally-made crafts. The shop’s jams, lovingly made with seasonal fruit primarily from Oita Prefecture, are popular for how the flavor and fragrances of the ingredients come through in the finished product. The winter only “yuzu-neri” jam is so popular it disappears from the shelves very fast but makes an excellent gift if you can get your hands on it. The interior of the shop, located inside a late Edo period merchant’s house, is charming and subdued.

    "This butaman steamed pork bun shop was started by a group of local amateur housewives. The shop's original signature ""hell-steamed"" pork buns are cooked using steam venting from a hot spring. The shop also sells buns with shiso leaves which are popular with women; pink pork buns modeled after women's breasts; frozen buns; and butaman gift sets which come with standard butaman buns, shiso buns, and pink buns. The shop also offers a home delivery service at the front of the establishment."

Oita Areas

around-area-map

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
