Overview of Oita

“The Onsen Capital of Japan.”

Considered to be Japan’s onsen (hot springs) capital, Oita prefecture is home to two onsen towns: Beppu and Yufuin. Beppu is home to more hot spring water than anywhere else in Japan and second only to the US’ Yellowstone National Park. It contains unique hot springs attractions like sand and mud baths, perfect to ease aches and pains, and the Hells of Beppu, a collection of 8 natural hot springs that are better appreciated by viewing than by using and dipping in.
