Afternoon peeps! It's Sunday again! Time seriously flies. Anyway, in this post, I will be blogging about my visit to Yufuin during my spring trip. Yufuin is one of the most popular tourist attraction in Oita. Yufuin was also featured in travel shows, travel guides and many other online sources too. It was made famous by its hot spring a.k.a onsen in Japanese. Besides, it also have beautiful scenery and housed a lot of souvenir stores, foot spa parlors, cafes and few restaurants too.
Another must-see spot in Yufuin is the Lake Kinrinko (金隣湖) which is about 15 minutes walk from Yufuin JR station. The lake has one of the most Koi fishes in Japan! You will also will spot gooses/ducks at the lake too. Around the vicinity are few souvenir stores, restaurant and a mini shrine too. The usual amenities such as restrooms are also easily accessible here.

Yes, I have come to the end of this short travel post. I hope these information will help you to plan your trip to Yufuin too. Nevertheless, note that for trains to Yufuin, prior reservation is to be made to avoid disappointment. My advice is that once you touched down at Fukuoka airport, head down to JR Hakata station's tourist centre and make the reservation. The staffs are able to speak English and definitely will help you with the booking. Okay, please drop by soon next week for another weekly update then!
