Yufuin Onsen is around 10km from Beppu Onsen, at the foot of Mt. Yufu. It is a highly walkable resort town, with shopping streets, cafes and galleries, and a wide choice of hot springs and hotels. Many of the hotels allow day visitors to use their hot springs.
The hot springs are scattered throughout the town, but you can reach many easily on foot from Yufuin Station. The area is known for mist which forms in the valley, and on Lake Kinrin. Mt. Yufu towers above the town, offering a scenic skyline from many of the outdoor hot springs. Lake Kinrin is at the end of the main street, about 1.5 km from the station. You can stroll around the lake on one of its walking paths. There are cafes, shops and small hotels around the lake, and a shrine at its southern end.
