“Oita Prefecture, located on the eastern coast of Kyushu, is blessed with a warm climate and an abundance of fresh produce from both land and sea. The central area is a leader in art, food, and culture. Oita boasts the most onsens in Japan (over 4,500), including Beppu and Yufuin, the country’s two largest hot springs areas.
