Daikanbo, Aso

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Take in the view at Daikanbo, an observation area within the national park. The scenic spot, located on the top of a hill, offers views of five peaks of the mountain range, said to resemble a reclining Buddha. An onsite visitor center introduces the area, the significance of the view, and includes a restaurant serving light refreshments. To reach the observation platform, travel by car and use the onsite parking lot, or drop by as part of a longer walk through the national park.

  • Kurokawa Onsen tour three times to the stopped. Walk a considerable distance from the parking lot, but was crowded with many tourists. ASO Caldera, round up and looked a far lower town and village was a refreshed looking down.

  • 3/5 went to the Grand view mine, but that day, Taikan peaks around Japan's largest baking photographers everywhere. Precious big smoke and ash flies and very rarely can't able to change.
