Not much to see compare to big city. But basically they have everything. Supermarkets (far up in the hill), souvenir stores, cute cafe, ice cream places etc,. Don’t expect to much just enjoy.

One of the main attractions in Yufuin is without doubt its public baths. What I recommend is Shimon Yu, which is just beside Kinrin Lake. You put the entrance fee to a provided box by yourself (about $2). Attention: this bathroom is mixed for men...More

both are great visits. Yufuin specialises in hot spring and more tourism developed. Beppu is a seaside town and has hot spring also, though not specialised in this. depends on your preference!
