Japan Trip Winter 2011
Day 7: Beppu Ropeway and Lake Kinrinko

Day 7: 18 December 2011

Beppu Day Pass (Bus): ¥1600
Take the bus from JR Beppu Station, West Exit, Terminal 1.
Stop at Mt Tsurumi Ropeway (22 mins).

Be there early to avoid tour buses. No queue!

Take note of the bus schedule

Freezing cold + strong winds = 2 suffering equatorians

Great view at the top

Lots of walking
Took the same bus as before and headed to Yufuin Station (walking distance to Lake Kinrinko).
30 mins from Beppu Ropeway to Yufuin Station.

Lots of shops in Yufuin, lined up towards the lake.

Lunch. Recommended in Lonely Planet.

Empty when we came but it quickly filled up at lunch time

Chicken karaage set

Unagi set. Total for both sets, ¥2800.

Chopstick holders

You can engrave chopsticks for free! Great souvenirs.

There's the infamous lake that made us go "That's it?!"

The disappointment led us to food.
Cappucino, hot cocoa, egg roll and green tea pudding, ¥1330.

Take the same bus for a return trip straight to Beppu Station (52 mins).

~End of Day 7~

Buy tickets to Musashi, starring Mizobata Junpei!
