After the Meiji Restoration, Bungo and southern Buzen Provinces were combined to form Oita Prefecture. These provinces were divided among many local daimyo and a large castle town never formed in Oita.
Oita Prefecture is located on the north-eastern coast of the island of Kyushu. Surrounded by the Suo Channel and Honshu Island to the north, the Iyo Channel and Shikoku Island to the east, it is bordered by Miyazaki Prefecture to the south, and Fukuoka Prefecture and Kumamoto Prefecture to the west.
Oita Prefecture is almost entirely covered by mountains and has only narrow coastal plains.
Oita Prefecture is famous for its hot springs.
