A walking tour in Beppu?!

Beppu has long been a thriving tourist destination. Its popularity has not stopped, and in recent years, not only domestic customers but also many foreign tourists have been seen. When you hear "Beppu," the first thing that comes to mind is probably hot springs. Also, the "Hell Tour," which takes advantage of the fact that the area has long been a place where hot water and steam have been spewing out, continues to attract many tourists as a major tourist attraction in Beppu.

However, that's not all that Beppu has to offer! Going to hot springs, watching the steam, eating delicious food... that's enough to make a wonderful trip, but if you want something even more exciting, we recommend the Minami Beppu Area Walking Tour!

What is the Minami Beppu area?

A place where you can experience the "everyday life" of Beppu

There are many restaurants and bakeries where locals gather, galleries where you can appreciate the works of local artists, and wonderful cafes scattered around. Of course, there is also a Jimo-sen (public hot spring) that is unique to Beppu! Why not explore the new charms of Beppu?
