Kikuchi Valley


Enjoy short trekking in the Nature. 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 100 best

waters in Japan.


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

down the other side.



Kikuchi Valley is an ideal place for a summer resort. Also it has a walking trail, forest park and

wild bird park, etc.  Since over 50 kinds of wild birds are living in the valley, many people visit

for bird watching.
