    Oita Nakatsu various town 1780

    江戸時代から続く医者の家系で、昭和32年までここで医院をしていたというのが驚きでした。入口手前が医院で、奥は住居だったらしいです。庶民の家からすれば立派なのでしょうが、病院兼自宅にしては小ぶりな感じがしました。近所にある現代的な村上記念病院を見てから行くと、そのギャップが興味深かったです。 中津城・福沢諭吉旧邸との共通入場券を見せると、ほぼ半額の100円で入館できます。

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.
