Kokonoe Yume Suspension Bridge九重 夢 大吊橋
A bridge 173 meters high and 390 meters long. Completed in 2006, it is the longest pedestrian bridge in Japan. The scenery from the bridge is, in a word, superb, and those traversing its length can get sweeping views of such sights as Narukogawa Ravine and a stunning Shindo-no-taki waterfall, with larger and smaller sub-waterfalls. Visiting in fall to see the autumn foliage is particularly recommended.

Oita Main Areas
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.
