Mount Tsurumi, an ancient volcano, is an unmistakable geological landmark of the region of Beppu. The summit of the mountain is accessible by the Kintetsu Beppu Ropeway. Many small shrines are located around the summit but the main attraction is, without any doubt, the amazing view of the bay of Beppu.
The Kaikaro Teahouse is located in Kanazawa’s Higashi Chaya (East Teahouse) district. Japanese teahouses are traditional establishments where guests may be entertained by Geishas. While most of those establishments are exclusive, the Kaikaro Teahouse is open to the public. The teahouse features many lavishly decorated rooms on the second floor. The visit includes tea and a traditional Japanese desert (Kuzukiri) where noodles made of Kuzu starch are dipped in a sweet syrup covered by a thin gold leaf.
