Prefectural capital:Ōita City
The nickname of Ōita Prefecture is the “Onsen Ōita”. In the both the number of hot springs and the volume of hot water produced, Ōita Prefecture is the number one in Japan. In particular Beppu and Yufuin Onsen are famous hot spring areas. There are more than 100 public hot springs in Beppu Onsen that is full of life as hot spring resorts.
Smokes in the photo are not the fire, are steams rising from hot springs. A town surrounded by steams is like Shangri-La. If you walk around wearing a yukata, it will be a great memory.
