Usajingu Shrine

Reviewed By hfot2 - Vermont

The Usajingu Shrine is the head shrine for over 40,000 nationwide. The main hall is designated as a national treasure and is said to be the model for most Hachiman shrines.
A lot walking and stairs are involved in visiting this very large temple complex. We did, however, see some elderly people moving slowly through the grounds and even a few in wheelchairs. The lower level complex has broad walkways, temple buildings, ponds with lovely Bridges, and stairs leading up the hill to the main buildings on the upper level. Many sub-buildings and tourist shops are spread about.
The main shrine is an unusual double structure, in the typical red and white colors of Shinto shrines. It was very difficult to get a glimpse into the main shrine building. The angle and placement of the doors prevented good sight lines. We were impressed to read that the shrine’s prestige is second only to Ise, where we were on a previous trip.
Many worshippers and tourists visit daily so it’s best to arrive early to avoid the crowds. Plan to spend a good deal of time here as there are many buildings to see and a lot of walking to do.

African Safari

Reviewed By joyance - Singapore, Singapore

Expensive entrance fee which the park does not have anything much except some kangaroos which you can't feed, same monkeys and donkeys and hamsters to carry.
Pay another fee to get on safari truck to feed the wild animals. This is rather fun as there are tigers and lions to feed, but for the price we paid it is not worth the visit.

Ajimu Budoushu Koubou

Reviewed By HPDubai - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The grounds are very extensive and the equipment and the facilities are shown well. Tasting is well organised. Neither the red nor white wines seen to be able to agree with my taste buds. Exception is the champagne which I can highly recommend. In view of all the huge facilities it is amazing that only 160.000 bottles per year are produced in a large variety of blends. Lunch was very good and tasty.The set menu with Oita specialities can be recommended.

Showano Machi

Reviewed By Just-Julie-Cairns - Cairns, Australia

I wanted to see this town and visit the showa street area as advertised in Japan National Tourism Organisation. Walking along the narrow streets, takes you back in time. There are shops displaying many old artifacts from the 1950's to 1960's in amongst the usual tourist souvenirs, which was a pleasant experience. The area is not large. The shops sell much of the same things but we did enjoy the chance to visit. There is a museum that you can visit for a cost or do what we did and just walk around the free view areas. One small family run restaurant by the name of Ootoraya advertised that they had not changed their prices for 35 years. We had lunch here and found the home style Japanese cooking to be quite enjoyable and plentiful. Five of us had lunch for 2,000 yen. If you are going to visit Usa shrine dont forget to do the slight side trip to this town for a short visit and if it is around lunch time check out the family run restaurant Ootoraya.

Oita Prefectural Museum of History

Reviewed By Karen J - Colorado Springs, Colorado

Lots of examples of kote-e (trowel / plaster art). Earlier, we were taken on a tour of local kote-e in the city ... and we got to try our hand at making our own.
There is an incredible $10,000 display that ... apparently, they used to light on fire and send out to sea during funerals. So beautiful!

Higashi Shiya Falls

Reviewed By arl3203 - Sasebo, Japan

About 20 minutes from the town of Ajimu-machi, this is a beautiful place to see! There is a 10 minute trail from the parking lot that follows the stream to the waterall through a canyon with steep walls and thick vegetation. The path is wet and slippery and downright treacherous in some spots but the views are lovely. The waterfall is narrow and falls 279 feet (85 meters) down a straight cliff to a pool below.
There is no charge to see the falls, but parking is 200 yen for cars. There is a bathroom facility near the parking lot.

Takkiri Valley

Reviewed By ブルービリーブ - Aichi Prefecture, Japan

お宿の方のご厚意によるご案内で「旅行予定外の観光」で訪れましたが、自然豊かで心身とも癒される空間でした。耶馬渓溶岩で出来た一枚岩の渓流で、清流が約2km続くの水道遊歩道です。キャンプ場もあり夏季にはさぞかし混雑すると思いましたが、紅葉前でしたので人影まばらでした。きっと紅葉シーズンともなればすごい人波だと思います。駐車場から歩いていても往復別の景観が楽しめ、狭い道を車で走ってきた以上の価値がある景観でした。

昭和の町として有名となった豊後高田のバスターミナルのすぐそばに昭和を再現した「昭和ロマン蔵」という一画があります。有名になった観光ボンネットバスが停まっています。蔵の前には箱型のセダン、ライトバン、クーペをはじめとする昭和の自動車が並んでいます。蔵に入ると木の机、椅子、黒板の教室等が見学できます。有料ゾーンもありますが無料施設を見て回るだけでも十分楽しめます。

Torii Bridge

Reviewed By Karen J - Colorado Springs, Colorado

Pretty Bridges. There are some hollowed out caves on the far bank that were apparently used to hide during WWII. It's cool by the river. There was a hands-on exhibit at the giant salamander place that let you construct your own bridge. They made a bamboo frame, put the stones on it (including the keystone), then took the frame away.

Senzai Farm

Reviewed By ETflyer - Fukuoka, Japan

噂にきいて尋ねてみました。小山のような斜面がすべて藤棚で藤の天井の建物の中にいるような感覚になりました。驚きでした。今まで、どうしてここを知らなかったかと思ってしまったほどです。バラ園のほうは100円(花が少なかったからだと思います。宇佐市の観光案内には400円とありました)ですが、藤のほうは無料でした。駐車場は400台分ありGW中ですが、駐車場待ちもありませんでした。宇佐ICの近くで、5分強程度の運転でした。道案内はちょっとわかりづらかったです。農園の近くは道が狭いです。大分県内と九州の近県から来ている人が多いようでした。
