From Oita Airport, You arrived at Kannawa Onsen.

1.Speaking of Kannawa Onsen, “Steam”!!4 ways to enjoy steam

Kannawa area has benn famous for Steam Food, Jigoku-mushi, since the Edo period .
Jigoku-mushi use hot steam from the jigoku onsen.

1-1.Enjoy Steam Food at Facilities

There are two facilities where you can enjoy “Steam Food, Jigoku-mushi” in Kannawa Onsen area.

Jigoku Steam Workshop Kannawa

▼Because it is in the spa town, this will be easy to use.

Steamed Dish Kitchen Kannawa

▼If you are driving, “Steamed Dish Kitchen Kannawa” along Route 500 will be recommended.

1-2.Enjoy Steam Food at hotel,Ryokan

The above Facilities are open to everyone.
You can experience “Steam Food, Jigoku-mushi” easily, but “waiting time” seems to occur,For example weekend.
For people who are not good at such congestion, I recommend a hotel or Ryokan with “Steam Spot(Jigoku-gama)”.

In case of “Yanagiya” I stayed at
Yanagiya has eight “Steam Spot(Jigoku-gama)” and Shared Kitchen.

I cut the vegetables in a shared kitchen and line up in the cage.

Yumetake(Bamboo hot spring thermal cooling device)

The source of Kannawa onsen is high temperature, it is not suitable for bathing as it is.
If you water, “freshness” “quality” are sacrificed.
Therefore, they use chin and bamboo branch to cool.
