  • ASO crater is still cordoned off. Other surrounding Summit also was off-limits in the aftermath of the earthquake. Conversely kusasenri could fully enjoy the people was less spacious and airy.

  • Unfortunately it was not possible until the edge of the volcano because of the level of activity. Fortunately it was possible a helicopter flight (Friday to Monday) to take a tight 5 minutes for 10,000 Yen. The flight gives a spectacular view of the crater with the emerald green colored water/gunk. You can also walk around with stunning views. Have fun already.

  • Reside on the probability of Kyushu and not visit the caldera of Aso would have been a sin. Nowadays, sometimes it can monitor for your activity only from a distance, but even so, it's worth it.

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.
