Aso

3.9
Formed in 2005 after the merger of several smaller towns, Aso still offers a break from the urbane. The scenery steals the show here, with active volcanoes and mountains forming a dramatic landscape, protected as part of a national park. The crater of the main volcano can be seen at a museum at the top, after a hike or a trip on the ropeway, and its smoking interior represents one of the main things to see during a visit to Aso. The volcanic nature of the area means that you'll find plenty of hot spring resorts outside of Aso. Aso is in Kumamoto Prefecture. Our Japan tour itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Aso and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Aso

Aso possesses plenty of accommodations, either within the main city itself, or in the surrounding rural areas. For the most convenient accommodations, simply look along the train line that runs to the north of the volcano, where you'll see a range of hotels and guesthouses, with a mix of luxurious and basic options to choose from. North of the main town, a number of hotels and "ryokan" (traditional guesthouses) get as close as they can to the hot spring. This pattern continues throughout the more rural areas, with clusters of spa hotels close to the hot springs.
