  • as the volcano was active and we not allowed to visit inside the best option around is this nice 1 hour hike. Trail is easy to find and is made of stairs to top. Good view to all directions.  more »
  • The smallest and the one of the closest volcanoes near Kusasenri, you can hike up there within an hour. There are stairs going up to the top and there is probably a nice view but while I was there...  more »
  • Surreal! Autumn scenery like alien planet on Star War!
  • This is a short and easy hike up to the top as the trail is paved, though the staircase is a bit too steep. It was only a 30 min hike on my last hike. Amazing landscape of Aso's caldera and Mt Aso's crater are waiting for you when the weather is fine. You can start this hike from Kusasenri car park where you need to pay 410 yen for the parking fee.
