    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.

The hot Kamo Negi Soba noodles, just the thing to enjoy on a cold day, are served in a broth which perfectly pairs an abundance of locally grown spring onions with the rich flavor of duck.

    Oita Hita-shi Mamedamachi 8-15
    This longstanding Western confectionary shop, established in 1891, stands on the Mamedamachi Shopping Street's Miyuki-dori Street a five-minute drive from Hita Station as well as the Hita Interchange. As hinted at by its name, the shop primarily sells yokan jelly. The shop's Akashi Hita Yokan jelly is made by hand according to a traditional recipe. Sold as single large blocks wrapped in attractive packaging, as the jelly nears its best-by date, the surface gradually saccharifies and turns white. Happily, customers can also choose jelly wrapped in packs designed to prevent this saccharification from occurring if they so desire. The shop's exquisite yuzu citrus fruit yokan jelly is only available for a limited time each year.

Oita Areas

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.
