Lake Kinrin, Yufu

3.3
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. Put Lake Kinrin into our Yufu trip maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Such a nice and beautiful lake in Yufuin. Should come if you want to come to Beppu
  • Really disappointing after all the nature beauty that we see around Kyushu. Lots of tourists gathering around a small lake that to me seems an oversized artificial fishing pond.
  • The lake is really amazing. The reflection of the mountains and clouds on the lake just like a drawing. But it's a pity that there are too many tourists.
  • The washrooms nearby are very smelly and dirty
  • The lake itself is stunning. One huge more ... Yufuin is sounded like a group of people. People think it would be great when it comes to be

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.
