Oita Prefecture, which is nestled into the western end of the Seto Inland Sea on Kyushu, is a richly-varied and lush region that ranges from its long intricate coast, via lowland plains through elegant valleys to high plateaus and onto soaring mountain ranges. This beautiful countryside provides great walking and is also the source of a wide variety of fresh food that is amongst the best quality in Japan. Any meal here is a veritable banquet of seasonal dishes with ingredients sourced from the seas, rivers, fields, forests and mountains satiating the most discerning palate.
Oita also boasts Japan’s largest concentration of onsen making it the nation’s hot spring bathing capital. Here onsen come in many different guises; some are clear and others murky, some pungent while others are fizzy. Undoubtedly, It is a mecca for anyone who likes to indulge in the soothing and relaxing waters of hot springs whilst enjoying the distinctive and gracious Japanese culture associated with bathing. Tour Leader Miwa Fujinuma is a long-term Oita resident and expert on the prefecture’s many attractions. In her company we enjoy an intimate virtual experience of Walk Japan’s Oita Hot Spring Trail.
