About this sight

Located in the North-Eastern region of Oita Prefecture, Kitsuki is famed for its traditional buildings and quaint streets which have been largely untouched by modern urban development and still very much resembles an Edo period samurai town.

The historical ambiance of the city, combined with its unique hilly terrain has lead to it becoming both a popular destination for tourists who wish to take a step back in time and tv studios who require an authentic backdrop to film historical dramas.
