Oita Trappist Monastery was built on July 11th, 1980, by Saint Benedict of Nursia. It was the second monastery for Catholic monks to be established in the country.
Situated on top of a hill, the location provides a stunning view overlooking Beppu Bay. Shikoku can be seen from here on a clear day, which makes it a great driving destination, even for dates.
Adjacent to the Monastery is a cookie factory with a shop and a museum.
