    It's simply the best tourist info hub I've ever been to in Japan. This is my 4th trip to Japan and I've visited a lot of tourist info centers. The staff are, informative, helpful, cheerful. Everything is so well organised. Thank you for all the help! 👍👍👍👍

    The team of Wander Compass is really great!
    They have a variety of tourist information leaflets for sightseeing in and around Beppu.
    You can store your luggage for 500 yen per piece (we did so until we could check-in to our hotel).
    We also purchased the "Monkey Marine Ticket" there, which includes the Umitamago Aquarium, the Takasakiyama Monkey Park as well as the bus ride there and back.
    They did also help us with bus routes and schedules.
    Everyone we met at Wander Compass spoke english and was really nice and supportive.
    Made our stay at Beppu a great experience.
    Thank you!

    Wander Compass Beppu tourist information center is the best in the world. Staff there are informative, helpful, knowledgeable, cheerful, and friendly. They are passionate about helping you and service from the heart no matter what questions, queries, and difficulties. They made calls for us to make reservations for bus and taxi. They spoke excellent English. We bought 2 days pass, with maps and information, we had a wonderful experience in Beppu. Highly recommend tourists to visit this center and meet these awesome, kind, and professional staff, especially Yuriko. I love you all

    Tomomi-san (Timo) and crew are amazing and you owe it to yourself to drop by! We stopped in with a general plan to visit some of Beppu's famed onsen. They directed us towards their onsen expert who gently probed our preferences like an onsen sommelier and then created an amazing list of places to visit.
    We returned the next day with the first page of our onsen passports completed and Tomomi-san was so excited for us!
    We told her that we wanted to get our onsen passports certified but were worried that might miss our bus to Fukuoka. She said "Follow me" like the protagonist in an action movie and swept out the door with us in her wake. She then led us on a 12-minute power walk through markets, narrow alleyways, and side streets until we arrived at the onsen passport building. She used her Japanese and fluent English to get our onsen passports expedited, immortalized it all with a celebratory photo, and then made sure we caught our bus with minutes to spare. 10/10 experience, highly recommended.
