Tsuetate Onsen town is located on the border of Kumamoto and Oita Prefectures.
Recently, more customers are fascinated by the back ally atmosphere maintained since the Showa period. Many tourists stroll through the rustic and unique atmosphere, capturing an environment that has undergone constant remodeling and expansion over the years. In the Tsuetate area, the back ally is called “Sedoya” (the house behind the other house). Many culturati visit this area and take a fancy to the nostalgic and quiet ambience.
From April to the first week of May, the Koinobori(carp streamer) Festival is held in Tsuetate Onsen. About 3,500 Koinobori swim above the Tsuetate river to the flow of a refreshing spring breeze.
Some fun events for kids are scheduled on 5/3 - 5-5.
