We went up there with our baby in a carrier. It was 0 degree Celsius so it was slightly cold. However, we walked up to the top of the mountain so it was not hot at all. It’s worth our time.
Reviewed:2019/11/05 Nice view of Beppu and Oita
Nice vantage point of beppu and oita, the view was spectacular and refreshing. The ticket price is reasonable and there is a coin locker for bags at the station.

          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.
