  • Majestic Word will. Kurumayama Kogen Shin in favor I like, but not to the grandeur of the ASO. Soak up the scenery. Free parking and toilets. So is ASO the wind comes out well. Please be careful body temperature taken.

  • It is a high school field trips since. I think it is ideal at the layer change, ranging from children to the elderly. Weather was good, was best at this time, but anyway indescribable panoramic views 360 ° views. Overlooking the caldera of ASO, now enjoy the grandeur of nature. So not high tree grows on the top of the mountain stands out the beauty of the terrain. It is at the top of the scenery once. Please try to go.
