Beppu City Traditional Bamboo Crafts Center (別府市竹細工伝統産業会館)

4.5

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

Come see displays of traditional Oita handiwork and this display center for Beppu Bamboo Works. There are a lot of works on display to appreciate including traditional daily goods and flower baskets as well as modern interior pieces made by skilled traditional craftsmen and even pieces made by Beppu's own formerly Living National Treasure, Shouno Shouunsai. With at least a week's prior reservation you can try your own hand at weaving bamboo into baubles or baskets. At the Museum Shop and Cafe, which opened in 2018, you can purchase bamboo goods or enjoy a coffee or other beverage. The nearest bus stop is Hikarinosono Mae or Takezaiku Densankaikan Mae.

          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.
