Going to Kurokawaonsen, I stopped at Kusu.
They say the place is the fairy tale village because a guy who was called the Andersen of Japan was from Kusu.
There were big statues from the Momotaro (Peach boy) tale.
He was born from a peach, and he went to the island where demons lived to exterminate them with the help of a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant.
And I found a bread shaped like a red demon in the bakery there.
It was yummy with an apple filling.
This is Yufumabushi at the restaurant Shin near Yufuin station.
The chicken or beef over rice is brought in the hot earthenware pot.
While waiting that you can enjoy included appetizers.
After the hot pot came, first you stir inside and eat, second you eat it with many kinds of pickles and condiments.
Then, last you pour dashi soup over the rice and eat everything.
It was very delicious.
I stayed at a Hotel where each room has its own outside hot spring bath in Yufuin.
There are a lot of hotels like this in Oita prefecture.
After I took a bath, my skin got smooth.
I relaxed and enjoyed it there.
I used Kyushu revival discount at the hotel, so I could stay there cheaply.
Thank you very much.
The other day I went Yufuin, which is located Oita Kyusyu.
It is famous for hot springs.
The photo is a pond called Kinrinko.
There are many souvenir shops, cafes etc. on the street from Yufuin station to Kinrinko.
Floral Village, made to look like Cotswolds in England, is also there.
It is a little cute village.
They sold wine with classic animation art labels.
I didn’t buy it, maybe it is only good for display.
I like statues.
This one is located at the side of Katsura bridge in Bungotakada, Oita.
Little kids are pushing each other.
It is a old tike game called Oshikkura, where whoever falls down is the loser.
I thought they were very cute.
