The information lady at the station was so helpful, explaining how to get to the places we wanted to see and selling both tickets and a one day bus pass. She made our visit very easy. Her explanations were very clear and detailed.

Located at JR Beppu Station the English staff (who are multi-lingual) will help you in planning your trips to the various locations around Beppu. Bus routes and rail links can be difficult, but they gave us all the information need.
