#1 of 7 in Spas in Yufu
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. Our Yufu sightseeing planning app makes visiting Yufuin Area and other Yufu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

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.
