Kitsuki Castle Town Museum (きつき城下町資料館)
This museum, a five-minute drive from the Kitsuki Interchange on the Oita Airport Road, is located in Kitsuki City's Kitadai area and introduces the history of the area. The museum collects and preserves cultural properties and historically valuable materials; engages in research and excavations; and presents its findings to the public through its exhibits. A 3D diorama in the first floor lobby reveals the structure of the former castle town; an elaborately-decorated coach used in the local Tenjin Festival is also displayed here. The second floor is dedicated to samurai culture and lifestyles and displays records from the town's government office as well as items which reveal the culture of the townspeople. On the third floor, visitors can learn about Kitsuki kabuki, industry, folklore, and cultural properties through videos.

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.
