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.
