    Visited this town enroute to Yufuin. Very quiet and slow pace, not many visitors. The shops sell interesting stuff. Had a wonderful meal in one of the local restaurants. Love it!

    Heard all your wish will came true if you visit here and worship.
    It is located right out of a hiway exit, so visit there if you have
    time and a wish to realize.

    Lovely tour here... I really enjoyed myself. The cons first...

    The Bad
    I signed up for an English tour, but somehow got into a Japanese tour. Now I know Japanese at a intermediate level, however she spoke sooooooooo very fast it wasn't easy to follow along. Also you could tell she was at the end of her shift as, as soon she stopped talking at very points her cheerful visage would disappear. She didn't appear to visually hate us butttttttt you could tell she was just about done with us about half way through the tour.

    The Good
    Right as I got out of the van... the view oh boy the view. LOVELY view from ontop of a hill. Stunning it took me a good 5 mins to take it all in, and finally go inside.
    The food at the food building was fantastic. The snack and gift shops had some good stuff as well.

    The Great
    The Beer was superb. Also the tour itself was great. It begins with a history lesson and ends with free beer! There is also a non alcoholic beer available. I had both. I definitely prefer the real mccoy though. You are also given a half pint glass for free at the end, and free beer nuts to snack on.

    I'd probably go back again one more time just see it again.

    We went during a very quiet period, parked at the pottery museum and walked down, it is very special, pottery made in the area dating back to 1700's (I think) I enjoyed the video in the museum, although there is no translation so guesswork if you don't know Japanese, ancient way of attaining clay powder still in use. Peaceful
    Working kilns, didn't see anyone sculpting but pots etc drying and being sanded
    Lovely to browse and admire the pieces for purchase but not be monitored as people are elsewhere going about their work. Brought two small pieces

    This has once been one of the 3 biggest and well-reputed private school in Japan. At most, they once had 200+ students. The owner was a very famous local scholar and quite a few of his family members were very erudite. However, I was a bit frustrated that all the introductions were written only in Japanese.

    My husband and I and our Japanese friend had lunch here. The setting by the river is very pleasant. The floor plan is very open. Service was prompt and efficient. The hibachi at the table made fresh cooking of the meat easy. All food was very good.

    It was also neat to walk through the Farmer's Market to get to the restaurant. Such wonderful displays!

    It was my first time to come this side of Hita. I walked around Kizan Park, which is located at the riverside and spent a very relaxing time.

    We were strolling the streets when we were invited into a local soy sauce shop. In the back of the shop they are displaying over three thousand hina dolls. Usually hina dolls are only displayed in March but here the dolls are on display all year round. We were told that on the day of our visit admission was free (the normal admission fee is three hundred yen). What we found was certainly worth more than the ordinary admission fee. Most displays at local Hinamatsuri events held to stimulate the economy are from recent years. There are very few from earlier than the Taishou era that survived the WWII period. But here there were abundant displays of the highest standards from the Edo era. We learned that they had been brought to the district from Kyoto and Edo by the wealthy merchants. This was symbolic of how business had flourished in the Hita district. If you are interested in Ooita please browse my homepage Rediscovering Japan (Ooita).
