Tanoura Beach

This is one of beach side parks in Oita prefecture.
At this time of the year, elementary school students are there on a field trip. Local workers take stroll at their lunch breaks. Little kids with their mothers like to have lunch on benches, enjoying autumn sea breeze and mild sunshine at the beach. It is the most pleasant season here to spend time outdoors.

This park is one of popular places for local people. It is usually crowded with swimmers in summer. Special events are held on some weekends all through the year. It takes 10 minutes by local bus to get there from Beppu station. (AW)
