It was a pleasant drive from Beppu through some winding B roads. Felt like Disneyland minus the rides. Pretty in the autumn Colours. Lots of street food and cake/dessert shops nestled amongst the usual souvenir shops. A little overrun by tourists (like myself!).

Yufuin is a nice place, not much things to shop around and not too much scenic spot to visit. A peaceful environment for you and your beloved one. one or two nights is enough to feel the place. When you visit the tourist website or travel guide, all of them will ask you to take a direct train from Hakata... More

Too touristy! But if you are in the area, it's still worth a stopover or a nights stay especially at Kamenou Besso. The whole town is lined with tourist souvenir shops selling ice cream and Swiss roll. If you are stopping by, you must make it a point to try the B-Speak Swiss roll. Be prepare to queue though.

Too commercialized with many big tour buses. We arrived in the afternoon and this was the time the buses rolled in. The lake was busy with them and so were the streets but they come for a quick visit and they go. When they have gone, the place was more peaceful. We came from kurowaka and the village environment there... More

Yufuin is a small town with one main shopping street and many onsens. We stayed at the Yufuin Hotel Shohokan which is an onsen ryokan within a few minutes walk from the main shopping street. It is good that they provide half-board like many hotels in the region do, because many of the shops and even restaurants close as early... More

Calm, clean, and natural site. However, there are not much spots to visit or enjoy. I don't think it's worth spending all that time/money. And yet, Yufuin was highly commercialized city.

It is a small and beautiful town for a day trip. There are some interesting stores around so you might consider stay-over if you are a shopper that enjoy the scenery and hot spring.

Yufuin Floral Village is connected to Yufuin Shopping street and on the way to Lake Kinrin. It gives a nice stroll and great photo taking place. A not to be missed place when you are in Yufuin.

Plenty of onsens to choose from, whether it is at your resort or one of the smaller hot springs in town you will not be disappointed. Enough shopping to fill most of one day. Make sure to stop by the fish doctor to revive those tired feet.
