  • Co-op, coffee shops, restaurants, souvenir shops and station and is useful. Always crowded with tourists and locals. It is also good to kill time.

  • Because it is an open-air bath in the hot springs of the station was convenient. I stopped going to hot springs before heading back to the hotel alone, but bedrock Onsen and Singapore hotel pool with eventually ended up 3.4 hours stay. Carbonate hot spring bath foam with daikon radish salad is wonderful. I have wrapped a towel around open-air bath in the Center, so the 浸karanai bath. Is there a dedicated towel was handy. On Saturday, but a little expensive from what was not crowded.

  • Is 8 years Buri Oita came to the station, but insanely useful, you want what is should be aligned with anything. Personally, it contains a co-op so Oita local ingredients to get picks.
