Oita
Oita Prefecture is called the "onsen prefecture" for its many hot springs known across Japan, such as Beppu Onsen and Yufuin Onsen.
Oita's scenic spots created by a lush nature and history are alluring, and the beautiful autumn leaves of Yabakei Gorge are visited by many tourists in the fall.
Kitsuki City, known as "Little Kyoto," is a castle town with a rare, uneven topography, whereby the commercial district is located in a valley, surrounded by samurai residences on the hilltops to the north and south.
You can pray at Usa Jingu shrine, the head shrine of over 40,000 Hachiman shrines across Japan, whose beautiful main shrine is designated a national treasure.
In addition to the chicken dishes of its famous tori-ten chicken tempura and nakatsu fried chicken, Oita also boasts a wealth of seafood, such as the Seki Aji and Seki Saba branded fish, with their firm flesh created by the rough waters of the Seto Inland Sea and Pacific Ocean.
