Winter is here!

Beppu is in the midst of winter and it's getting colder and colder here. Even in cold winter, however, you can enjoy a lot of things including "Muhyo viewing" at the top of Mt. Tsurumi, 1375-meter high above sea level.


"Muhyo" at the top of the Mt. Tsurumi .


Muhyo is a tree branch covered with iced frost which you can see on very cold winter mornings. Americans call it a frost rime. 



To get to the top of Mt. Tsurumi, you can take Beppu Ropeway. It provides you a comfortable ride with a panoramic view from 9:00 to 16:30 daily. 



Many foreign tourists visit Beppu even in the winter season to enjoy onsen hot springs in the city of Beppu because it gives you more peaceful time to bathe in the onsen on chilly days.              Additionally, Beppu has many kinds of local foods that fit with the cold weather.
