Kyushu OLLE Takeo Course

"Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" is a regional vitalization project that collaborates with the different prefectures in Japan to present the Land of the Rising Sun in all of its diverse glory.

"Kyushu OLLE", the sister version of the "Jeju OLLE" trekking course originating in Korea, currently has 21 courses (as of July 2018).

The "Takeo Course", the first to be certified in Japan, is a popular course that never gets tedious in which both nature and the cityscape can be enjoyed. Start from Takeo Onsen Station and finish at the historic Takeo Onsen. The way to get there is easy and many visitors come from Japan and abroad.

3,000-year-old of "Takeo-no-Okusu" (camphor tree). This 27m high ancient tree is enveloped in a place with a relaxed appearance and mysterious air and is the highlight of the Takeo Course.

Along the course, you can enjoy eating while you walk with delicious items from the local bakeries, specialty coffee shops, Japanese sweets shops, and more. For those who wish to try a delicious, quality lunch box, we recommend one with Saga Beef from Kairo-do on the Takeo Onsen Station premises, which is a "3-time consecutive Kyushu Ekiben (lunch box relay) Grand Prix champion".

At Takeo Onsen, which has about 1,200 years of history, you can relax and melt your fatigue away.
