Amazing Views at Mt. Aso in Kumamoto (Winter)

Kumusta? It’s Mr. Wada on duty. I will continue exploring beautiful Kumamoto. This time we are heading to Mt. Aso!

Note: Pics in this post were taken in 2014.

About Mt. Aso

Mount Aso is an active volcano (in fact some areas have been closed due to possibility of eruption, etc.),  located in the center of Kumamoto. It has a huge caldera.

Explore Mt. Aso!

Less than 30-minute drive from the central takes you to another world.


A bit cloudy.

Laputa Valley

Laputa refers to Castle In The Sky, a Studio Ghibli film. Probably it looks like a view from Laputa?

Daikanbou (大観峰)

Daikanbou is one of the mountains in Aso. Just…amazing. I wished it was summer. Really wanted to see it green. Still beautiful though.
