    A museum adjoining the Hatchobaru Power Plant in Yutsubo, Kokonoe Town, Kusu County, Oita Prefecture.

The facility also offers a 60-minute guided tour of the power plant and museum, giving visitors the chance to see the largest geothermal power plant in Japan.

    無料のツアーに参加でき、冷却装置や発電モーター、上映などを楽しむことができます。夏にいくと、タービンがまわっている部屋はめちゃくちゃ暑いです。パンフレットといっしょにエコカードがもらえて、全部集めたくなってしまいます。景色もよいところにあるので、ドライブコースに立ち寄りスポットでもよいでしょう。

Oita Main 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.
