      Yufuin

      Another onsen resort representing Oita is Yufuin. Of course you can enjoy onsen in this area, but as soon as you get off at Yufuin Station, you can see "Yufumi Street", which meanders in the direction of the onsen town. Further on there is "Yunotsubo Kaido", which heads further toward Kinrin Lake. Only about 30 minutes on foot, you can spend a pleasant time simply by walking around the town and seeing the variety of shops such as restaurants, craft shops, cafes, and sweets shops lined up along the sides of the road. In addition, there are several museums scattered around the town on another route heading from the station toward Lake Kinrin . To go to this area, it is advisable to relax and enjoy the countryside scenery by using the famous sightseeing Tsuji Basha (horse carriages).

      Trick 3D Art Yufuin

      "Trick 3D art is a new form of existing trompe l’oeil and 3D art, in which a three-dimensional, solid world is depicted on two-dimensional walls and floors, allowing viewers to enjoy its effect. Rather than the works created by many artists in Japan and abroad using brush or pencil, this museum displays works created using computer graphics (CG). These CG depictions suit the senses of modern viewers and offer a new form of expression in which one can more fully enjoy a sense of scale and realism. The museum also hosts monthly events, including the distribution of small gifts. We hope you’ll take your time and enjoy the many different trick 3D artworks, which are fun for everyone!
      * Artworks are changed annually in June."

      Kinrin Lake

      "Kinrin Lake is a noted tourism destination in Yufuin.
      Confucian scholar Mōri Kūsō named the lake “Kinrin” after the Chinese characters for the sparkling scales of fish swimming in the lake at dusk.
      At the bottom of the lake is a source of clear water and hot springs, with the water temperature being warm year-round. This causes, on early winter mornings, a mysterious fog to appear."

      Tenso Shrine is located along Kinrin Lake. The torii gate suspended in the lake is a landmark of the site. This area is, alongside Yufuin, a signature destination for tourists.

      "A nostalgic Showa period theme park Yufuin Showakan"

      1950s nostalgia: In August of 1957, the first run of the Daihatsu Midget car went on sale. In 1958, Tokyo Tower was completed, and highways and bullet train routes were opened. In 1964, the Tokyo Olympics was held. What had once been an impoverished Japan now bounced back with the excitement of the boom years. Always: Sunset on Third Street is a nostalgic 2005 film that looks back on those times. The Yufuin Showakan is a retro-styled theme park set in those days. There is also a permanent exhibit of work by Kiyoshi Yamashita, who traveled Japan in those days and frequently found his way to Kyushu.
