Water Body Nature / Park
Enjoy the serene atmosphere of Lake Kinrin, a shallow, clear lake fed by a couple of rivers and boasting two hot springs. The lake, named after the golden scales of fish reflecting the sunlight, attracts visitors for its notable phenomenon of mist evaporating from the surface, most apparent in winter and fall. Take a relaxing stroll along the lakeside boardwalk, or have a picnic and take in the peaceful atmosphere and lush green setting.

Where to stay in Yufu

Given that tourism in Yufu centers around its onsens, or mineral hot springs, it's no wonder that many of the lodgings in the area boast their own private bathhouses in addition to the many others in town. You can choose from a number of hotels and a wide variety of traditional Japanese ryokans, where you can sleep on futons on the floor. The accommodations mostly lie scattered around the village, leaving the main street filled with shops, cafes, and restaurants.
