This day was the last day of 3 nights 4 days Oita journey (Kannawa Onsen/ Yufugawa Valley→Tuetate Onsen/Hita・Mameda-machi/Mabashi-Belly→Blue Gate→Rakan Temple→Ichimoku-Hakkei).
I took a walk about 8 hours by bus and walking in Beppu city.
I am glad to be of service to you.
The bronze statue is “KumaHachi Abuyraya” which is loved as a beneficiary of Beppu, sightseeing father of Beppu.
He has a slightly quirky appearance.
It is an image that he has come down from heaven and calls “Hey!”.
