Maple Yaba Cycling Road Nakatsu, Oita (Kyushu)
3 April 2017
This road utilizes abandoned Yabakei railway tracks by the mountain side. There are attractive sights nearby such as Yabakei Gorge, a rock tunnel from Edo period and old iron bridges and abandoned platforms. The gradient is not steep and the natural scenery is very attractive, especially in Autumn with red maple leaves, hence the name.
