Take in the seascapes on a bay cruise, or learn of undersea delights at Japan's first sushi museum, and get a glimpse at feudal life in Japan in 200 BC at the archaeological site of Toro.

Their most famous, Hell circuit (Jigoku), are only for admiring, not bathing. Beppu Park, in the city's centre, offers green space and a vibrant Japanese garden.
