Carriage ride

From Yufuin station, families can tour the town, comfortably seated in a tsujibasya, a horse-drawn carriage. This local tradition, which dates from 1975, has contributed to the renewal of tourism following the huge earthquake that hit the centre of Oita prefecture. The 4km/2.5mi-loop goes over small stone bridges, skirts rice fields and passes by Bussanji temple and Unagi-hime Jinja shrine.
