About two hours away from downtown Fukuoka by bus, you can step into a small village, Beppu, which is famous as onsen(Japanese hotsprings) village. It is also good idea to rent a car and drive along countryside of Fukuoka. I bet you will be able to see a lot of greens such as mountains and trees. If you’d like to choose calm and peaceful atmosphere to release your stress rather than enjoying city and nightlife, I highly recommend visiting Beppu.
Beppu is definitely not a big city; however, it has everything you will need to make your travel more abundant and romantic. In particular, Beppu is a perfect place for people who love to warm their bodies in hotspring. If you imagine Beppu just as a place where does not have any single thing but only hot spring, you are taking it wrong. Though it is not very huge, Beppu provides tourists and its local people enough attractions such as shopping malls and dining spots.
