Nakatsu

Kick off your visit on the 8th (Tue): see the interesting displays at Doctor Oe History Museum, get engrossed in the history at Usa City Peace Museum, then get engrossed in the history at Oita Prefectural Museum of History, then steep yourself in history at Usajingu Shrine, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryuganji Temple. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Nakatsu Castle, take in the views from Yabakei Bridge, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rakanji Temple, then stroll around Yabakei Dam Memorial Park Keisekien, and finally explore the stunning scenery at Shinyabakei Gorge.

Plan my Nakatsu trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Taipei, Taiwan to Nakatsu is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Traveling from Taipei to Nakatsu, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. In October, Nakatsu is a bit cooler than Taipei - with highs of 26°C and lows of 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Oita.

The gateway to a wealth of dynamic landscapes and some of the country's most atmospheric religious and cultural sites, Oita, in touristic terms, acts primarily as a transport hub.
Explore Oita's surroundings by going to Usuki (Usuki Sekibutsu, Inabake Shimoyashiki, &more) and Beppu (Onsen Resorts, Hells of Beppu, &more). There's still lots to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Oita Marine Palace Aquarium Umitamago, get to know the resident critters at Takasakiyama Nature Zoo, get a taste of the local shopping with JR Oita City, and kick back and relax at Tanoura Beach.

For other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Oita trip planner.
