Kikuchi Valley is located in Aso Kuju National Park.

Underground water flows out of the subsoil for 4km along the valley floor.


It is also called the Kikuchi water source and its water was selected as one of the

There are two routes to follow: a 30 minute and a 60 minute loop along the river

bank and back down the other side.
