Yufuin Area, Yufu

(3.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Beneath the shadow of Mount Yufu sits Yufuin Area, a whimsical hot spring resort filled with cafes, boutiques, and museums. The main appeal of the district lies in its public bathhouses, though there are plenty of other attractions to keep you occupied here. You can explore quaint, winding streets, known for their galleries and artisan coffee shops, or indulge in a spot of retail therapy before heading to the springs for a refreshing soak. At the end of the area's main thoroughfare, Lake Kinrinko sits in scenic beauty, flanked by more shops and cafes, and a small shrine located at the its southern end.
