A Fairy tale World - 📍 Yufuin, Oita
Yufuin is one of the great day trip destinations from Fukuoka. You can take “Yufuin no Mori”, the most charming sightseeing train that runs from Hakata via Yufuin to Beppu. The interior of the train is elegantly designed, the carriages are covered with wooden floorboards, the walls and chairs are green; it’s really like being in the forest. That’s why the train is called Yufuin no Mori, “The Forest of Yufuin”.
