Yufu City: Immersed in Nature

Mountains, highlands and hot springs in Northern Kyushu

Yufu City, or Yufuin in Japanese, is a lovely hot spring town right in the middle of Oita Prefecture in Northern Kyushu, blessed with great mountains and healing waters. I took it as a base to climb Yufu-dake, a majestic mountain with two peaks; however, it also makes a perfect starting point for excursions to nearby Beppu. Yufu City has kept its charm and delivers a truly authentic experience. To see the cherry blossoms you should calculate early April; due to Yufuin's higher elevation, the blossoms open up much later than in the rest of Kyushu.
