Mabashi-Belly(Oita) Kyushu

I will return to Beppu with sightseeing , after Hita (Mameda Town).
I recommended this plan for touring(motor cycle) or drive.


I decided to take a stroll through “Mabashi-Belly” which is also called “Takachiho” of Yamakuni.

The landscape of Mabashi-Belly and “Nenbutu-bashi Bridge” was lovely.

You can see the emerald green heart here!!

Hadaka Rice Terrace

Hadaka Rice Terrace
Lunch Biking at “Road Station Yamakuni” was from 11 o’clock so I went to Hadaka Rice Terrace.
It was in “Autumn of Japan”.

There was huge Mushrooms(Maitake) in the “Mushrooms(Maitake) soba” ordered by me

Blue Gate

Blue Gate(Oita)
There was the Monk who dropped in at Yaba gorge on the way to the journey.
He hurt his heart by seeing people and horses losing their lives on dangerous roads.
And he began digging the rock wall by himself.

Blue Gate(Oita)
A major renovation took place from 1898 to 1879.
In the blue gate, the prototype at the time of completion was considerably lost.
There is a digging part that leaves the remnant of the time in the light harvesting window etc.

Rakan Temple

“Rakan Temple” is located in the rough rocky mountain, Rakan mountain.
Although you can climb up the walk on the approach path, a lift for sightseeing is recommended.

Rakan Temple(Oita)
I got off the lift and passed through the “stone gate” made of natural stone.

Rakan Temple(Oita)
And you reach the mountain gate.
From here onwards, it will be inside the precinct of “Rakanji”.

It was a sacred space with silence such as “place of training” and “place of prayer”.


I went to the “Ichimoku-Hakkei” in “Shin-yabakei Gorge Spa Onsen Town” south of the prefectural road No. 28.

Maybe this rock should be the main part of the “Ichimoku-Hakkei”.
Eight view can be seen at a glance! It seems to be, but I do not know where or where.

Is this couple? However, I feel that They do not face each other.
The rugged rock was somewhat powerful.
