About 25km inland from Beppu, delightful Yufuin (由布院) sits in a ring of mountains, with the twin peaks of Yufu-dake especially notable. The town lives for tourism and is a good place to see contemporary Japanese crafts, including ceramics, clothing and woodworking, and interesting foods. Yufuin gets crowded on holidays and weekends. If staying overnight, arrive before dusk, when the day-trippers leave and wealthier Japanese retreat to their ryokan.
