Observatory / Outlook

An observatory located in Kannawahigashi, Beppu City. Visitors can get a sweeping view of Beppu and Mt. Tsurumi and Ogiyama towering in the distance. Beppu has the highest yield of hot spring in Japan and the sight of hot spring steam blooming from various parts of the city is something truly unique to this place. This observatory’s night view has also been selected for inclusion in a list of Japan’s “Night View Heritages.”

Review of Yukemuri Observatory

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/06 Panoramic view
It is called “observatory”, but actually there is no relevant facility. If you don’t pay attention, you might overlook it by passing. The view over Kannawa area is not bad. Unfortunately, on the day...
Reviewed:2018/01/04 Sad because we could not find this place!
I thought I should write this down even though we didnt see this,.
please be careful - we used the telephone number for gps navigation and never found the spot.
Reviewed:2017/12/31 Nice view of Beppu
Its a short 10 minutes drive from our hotel. However once up there, You can see all the hot steam coming out of the houses and also a great view of the mountain and city. Worth the drive up.

          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.
