Oita Airport (Yufuin and Beppu)
2014 United Kingdom representatives, Emily (L) and Laura(R) standing in front of the ANA counter before departure ready for their first trip to Oita Prefecture.
From Oita Airport they took a bus to Yufuin. The room at the ryokan (Japanese-style hotel) and the view it provided were exceptional allowing them to fully enjoy the hotel's hot springs and food during their stay.
Taking the train from Yufuin to Beppu the next day.
From the train the scenery looks like were in a Ghibli Studio movie.
At the Beppu Hot Spring Chinoikejigoku (Bloody Hell Pond).
Are demons red because they spent too much time in the Bloody Hell Pond?
A photo with Team UK and support staff.
We found a very nice café to have lunch in.
Alice's Tearoom was crowded but our meal and dessert were delicious!
Our two night trip to Oita is finished so now it's off to Tokyo.
On the flight with the ANA staff.
