Kusasenri, Aso

(280+ reviews on the web)
Scenic Drive Landmark
Take in the fresh air and scenery of Kusasenri, an attractive grassy area located at the foot of the mountain. The inspiration for many romantic Japanese poems, the grassland offers a break from the lively urbane excitements of the country, providing a welcome natural simplicity in its look and feel. Take a stroll through the field to reach the main pond, meeting cows and horses on their way to the water source, and taking photos of all the green surroundings and the pleasant pastoral life they evoke. To visit Kusasenri on your holiday in Aso, and find out what else Aso has to offer, use our Aso vacation planner.
