Magnificent view of one of the largest caldera in the world and walking along the rim of the active caldera, and more


Mt. Aso area is the must-see place if you visit Kyusyu Island. This tour will enable you to see highlights of Aso in one day!
I will recommend you the places to visit, and you can create your own Aso tour. If you like to stop by a local specialty shop/restaurant or experience a hot spring resort, it is also possible. The sample tour course includes Futae Pass, Daikanbo (breathtaking view of the northern part of the huge caldera), local market, Komezuka, Kusasenri-ga-hama, and Nakadake Crater. The highlight of Aso tour is to walk around the rim of the active Nakadake Crater viewing inside the crater, which is filled with cobalt blue water. And from season to season, you will enjoy the different natural scenery and color of Aso!
