  • Did not look only to the poor bear from the era was known as the ASO bear Ranch is famous as the ASO tourist 1 place, packed in really small. I thought it is a bit more spacious and extensive grounds of ASO, or reduce the number and it is not or.

  • A 20 minute walk from a Soviet station. It's an animal park with a lot of visitors coming in front of it. The most animals are bears, black bears and brown bears. You can also take a picture of Bear's treasure. Other animals such as dolphins, sheep and so on. There are two theaters to provide the show. In addition, this is also the point of a helicopter view of the Soviet volcano.

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.
