* It's worth noting that this is far from an exhaustive list. With Oita's abundance of natural scenery, there are plenty of spots that are worth checking out, so get out there and explore, or better yet, consult your fellow Oitans and Oita JETs! Also, every season is different, so be sure to keep an eye on the forecasts.
