Oita

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Kyushu-Okinawa  /  Oita Prefecture  /  Oita
(3.3/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: zoos & aquariums, sightseeing, historic sites
The gateway to a wealth of dynamic landscapes and some of the country's most atmospheric religious and cultural sites, Oita, in touristic terms, acts primarily as a transport hub. The city itself offers some popular nightlife spots, where locals hang out drinking mugi shochu, a locally made spirit. But trips to Oita focus on what lies across the prefecture. Onsen resort towns, glitzy and remote, commercial and otherwise, have become the main places to base oneself in the prefecture, while trips up to see ancient temple complexes across the monkey-filled mountains add a little adventure to all the relaxation. With our world travel planner, Japan vacations can be built around trips to Oita and other destinations in Japan.

Where to stay

The accommodations of Oita proper lie between the main train station and the harbor. Congregating around the primary commercial districts, a number of high-rise hotels, some luxury and some standard, cater primarily to visiting businesspeople. Most visitors will instead choose to stay at the nearby resort towns of Beppu (a very touristy option along the coast to the west) and Yufuin (a more stylish and refined version, inland to the west) to enjoy the hot spring spa hotels.
