Where to explore
The beautiful prairie of 785,000 square meter in the crater, spreads in northern part of Mt. Eboshi
that is one of the Aso Five Mountains. A big pond at its center and grazing horses round about make
an idyllic scene.
The largest active volcano in Japan. Its peak is 1592 m above sea level. Its caldera is 25 km across
north to south and 18 km across east to west. The caldera has a circumference of around 120 km,
although sources vary on the exact distance. The site can be visited as per the volcano condition.
Enjoy Aso beef and local cuisines. The restaurant uses the old private house with thatched roof
built more than 200 years ago. Bake the meat and local ingredients with charcoal at a Japanese
traditional style fire place.
