Photos: Let's enjoy the magnificent view of Aso!

If you travel to Kyushu Island in Japan, I recommend going to Aso. In Aso, the caldera basin (18 kilometers east to west and 25 kilometers north to south) created by the volcanic eruption spreads, and beautiful mountains are connected around it. The volcano is still active and you can go near it. Please enjoy hot springs such as Beppu and Yufuin in Kyushu someday, and try sightseeing in the magnificent Aso!

Photos: Kumamoto Castle in Kyushu, Japan

If you want to see the strongest castle in Japan, I recommend Kumamoto Castle in Kyushu. Kumamoto Castle was heavily damaged by the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes. The photos on this page were taken before 2016. The castle is currently under restoration. From the spring of 2021, you will finally be able to visit the castle tower. If you go to this castle, you will surely feel the atmosphere of the samurai and the feelings of the locals who protect their castle!

Photos: Volcanic landscape at Aso in Kuomamoto Prefecture, Kyushu

Japan has about 110 active volcanoes, equivalent to 7% of the world. As a result, there are many hot springs. The volcanoes teach us the fear, beauty and appreciation of nature. If you want to feel such a volcano up close, I recommend going to Aso in Kyushu. I also recommend going to Beppu, located 90 km northeast of Aso. In Beppu, the largest hot spring town in Japan, you can feel the strength of volcanic magma!

The Ariake Sea in Kyushu is a bay with a large difference between low tide and high tide. At low tide, a vast tidal flat appears. Especially at Okoshiki Kaigan (Okoshiki Coast, Kumamoto Prefecture) you can watch the best sunsets as you can see on this page!

Photos: Kikuchi Keikoku (Kikuchi Gorge)

Have you heard of Kikuchi Keikoku (Kikuchi Gorge) in Kumamoto Prefecture? Speaking of a beautiful mountain stream in Japan, I first associate it with the Oirase stream (Aomori prefecture) in the Tohoku region of Honshu. The Oirase stream has become more and more popular in recent years, but the Kikuchi Keikoku is second to none. Those who enter the Gorge will be fascinated by the beauty of this stream. The gentle world created by Aso is spreading in the Kikuchi Keikoku. On this page, I would like you to have a virtual experience of the world of Kikuchi Keikoku.

Kumamoto Prefecture: Best Attractions and Things to do

Kumamoto is often referred to as "country of fire." Because in Kumamoto prefecture, there is Mt. Aso that still continues volcanic activity. It is a popular course in Kumamoto prefecture to see this volcano. Kumamoto castle in Kumamoto city is now restoring because part of it was broken in the 2016 big earthquake.
