Yufuin Area, Yufu

#1 of 72 in Spas in Oita Prefecture
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.

  • Far from the old atmosphere, various shops are lively. There are a lot of people, and it is like the town of Karuizawa. Each shop has a good sense of sales effort and design and construction. Almost all stores close by 6pm and A-Co-op until 7pm. The walk from Shirataki Bridge to Lake Kinrin is quiet and good with the view of dusk, which starts at 6 p.m. There are almost no people in the street, and you can enjoy the quiet streets and beautiful views.
