Abu

When you're visiting a new place, it's always worth reading up on it first. Abu is no exception!

Abu Vacation Packages

The well-known city of Hiroshima is just 55 miles to the east of Abu.

Dip your toes in the sparkling water at one of the local beaches. Go to Kokufu Beach, 40 miles to the northeast, or Saka Bayside Beach, 55 miles to the east.

If you're longing to reconnect with the sights and sounds of Mother Nature, load up your daypack and head to Susa Hornfels, located 8 miles away from Abu. Another option is Akiyoshi Cave, 25 miles away.

Sports lovers will love the atmosphere at Ishin One Hundred Year Memorial Park. It's in Yamaguchi, about 25 miles to the south of Abu. Don't forget to have a few beers at one of the nearby watering holes after the game.

When the snow hits the ground, join the fun at Mizuho Highland Ski Area, 50 miles from Abu, or Geihoku Kokusai Ski Area, 40 miles away.

Ito Hirobumi House and Tokoji Temple are some wonderful attractions in Hagi, a locality 7 miles away. An additional option is Tamae. It's 13 miles from Abu, and is home to Yukawa Family Old Residence and Hagi Uragami Museum.

You should make a day trip to Tsuwano. It's about 15 miles to the east of Abu and it boasts some fantastic visitor attractions, such as Yomeiji, Katsushika Hokusai Museum and Anno Mitsumasa Museum. If your itinerary allows it, also check out Tsuwano Catholic Church and Morijuku Museum.

More often than not, a destination's true essence can be found simmering in its pots and pans.

Travelers are certain to come across an abundance of beef and noodles, two characteristic regional ingredients.

Any well-versed foodie should be sure they order tempura (deep fried seafood or vegetables) and hako-zushi (square sushi) before surfing the menu for any other local dishes.

When the main course has settled, try some exquisite anpan (sweet roll).

If exploring the wonderful world of beer is your thing, grab a table with your mates and buy a round of Asahi Premium Beer Jukusen. Raise your glasses and enjoy one of the area's most beloved brews.

If you want to have an alcohol-free drink, genmaicha (green tea with brown rice) is always a popular option.

If you're having an evening out, make sure you try out a glass of junmaishu, a well-loved spirit.

Genuine travel goes beyond simply seeing the sights. It's also about immersing yourself in the words, stories and ideas of a place. Your experience will become richer if you attempt to practice just a few day-to-day expressions and greetings in Japanese. お誕生日おめでとうございます(otanjōbi omedetō gozaimasu) is Japanese for happy birthday. There's also Konnichiwa, which translates to hello.

If you're planning to be here on the 23rd of December, you better be ready to party. On this day each year, the whole nation comes together to celebrate Birthday of Emperor Akihito.

We all wish vacations could go on forever. However, you'll have to bid "Sayōnara" to Abu eventually. At least once you arrive home you'll have loads of incredible tales to tell!

Yamaguchi - Ube Airport is your most convenient airport at about 45 miles to the south, so just make sure that you leave plenty of time.
