Yufuin Area, Yufu

(460+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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. To visit Yufuin Area and other attractions in Yufu, use our Yufu itinerary builder.

  • Was going to come to the scenic and beautiful city, yufuin, alien was 9 percent. To begin with, from hot spring water to the hospital train yufuin no Mori 7 percent was foreign. Yufuin station waiting room was was occupied by foreigners, the Japanese feel uncomfortable. Very slow leisurely shop you want to see and can't think.
