Yufuin Full-Day Private Trip with Nationally-Licensed Guide

This value-packed trip with a nationally-licensed and experienced multilingual tour guide is a fantastic and efficient way to explore Yufuin!

Although the neighboring hot spring resort of Beppu may be larger, Yufuin has a wealth of art museums, cafes and boutiques along its main street, giving the town an atmosphere of a trendy shopping area. Nonetheless, visitors flock to the area's lodgings to enjoy bathing, with some open to daytime guests for bathing only while other hot springs are only open to those guests staying overnight.

Let us know what you would like to experience and we will customize a six-hour tour that's best for you!

Note*1: Please select your must-see spots from a list in the tour information to create your customized itinerary.
Note*2: The Nationally-licensed Tour Guide-Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government requires a good knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and history.
