Yamanami Highway (やまなみハイウェイ)
This is a one-hour drive course that connects Yufuin in the north and Kumamoto Prefecture’s Aso-gun Minami Oguni-machi Town in the south, selected as one of Japan’s greatest 100 mountain range roads. There are spots where one can enjoy views of the Kuju Mountain Range, hot springs, and Kogen gourmet food. There are many spots where one can feel close to the mountains such as the Tadewara Wetlands which formed from springs at the base of mountains in the Kyushu volcanic group and Yamanami Farm. Coming from the direction of Fukuoka/Oita, get off the Oita Expressway at “Yufuin IC” and take National Road 210, then enter the Yamanami Highway.

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.
