    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.

    湯布院に久しぶりに来ました。両親へのお土産は何がよいかと考えていたら、やはり和菓子だと思ってこの店に行きました。「きんつば」にしました。美味しい「きんつば」を作っているところも見えます。購入して帰ろうとしたら、「生栗羊羹」の試食もあったので、見逃す手はないと考えて、爪楊枝に刺していただきました。甘さが押さえてあり、舌触りもよいものです。栗の大きなものが入っていて美味しいです。思わずこれも追加で購入...

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.
