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.

  • The street has a lot of special shops, is a good place to buy letters. You can also "sweep the streets" and try different snacks such as corn soup, cheesecake, gold cake and so on. The only pity is that there are too many tourists and the whole street is filled with people.

  • This is a shopping street, but some shops sell products that are very special, there are cloth-made pendulum, hand-made clay pendulum. If you want to visit each other, it will take you a whole day.

  • Perhaps the most famous Onsen (hot springs) town in Fukuoka Prefecture. Long hot springs village development, indeed the whole touristy neighborhood. Springs global chain hotel, but without a lot of typical ryokan (Japanese-style hotel) coming out of Japan's hot springs where you can feel this.

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.
