JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME
Built on a vast volcanic area, Oita Prefecture is Japan’s hot spring capital; Beppu, in central Oita Prefecture, is home to more than 2,500 onsen—hot springs. Spend a day at Beppu’s so-called Eight Hells, where the water gushes out at temperatures as hot as 150°C in a variety of colors.
Vibrant, charming, and totally unique, Nagasaki beckons with churches, shrines, temples, and an East-meets-West culinary scene, prettily set within a gracious harbor. Experience an authentic tea ceremony at the Matsuura Historical Museum, a residence built in 1893 that was home to the Matsuura clan.
Set on the coast of the Sea of Japan, Fukui is relaxed and easygoing. Visit the Eiheiji Temple, a headquarters of Zen Buddhism and a palpably spiritual place set amid mountains, mosses, and ancient cedars.
