Oita is 70% forests and mountains from which the plentiful hot springs bubble forth. Oita is also proud of its bountiful seafood, such as the Seki brand mackerel and horse mackerel caught in the Bungo Straights. Beppu is world-famous for its onsens and natural beauty.
There is so much to see around Beppu. Whether you are traveling by bus, car or train, there is something for everyone. Just watching the mountains and the bay change over the seasons is enjoyable in itself!
