Due to Mount Aso being a living and active volcano, there are sometimes warnings in effect that can affect sightseeing visits. Always check the volcano's current status before a visit to the Aso area. Even if you happen to visit when there is an exclusion range in effect, you'll still be treated to incredible rural sights. Renowned for its sublime natural parks (like Aso Geopark) and unspoiled landscapes (Kujuu National Park), Aso is a premier destination for any nature lover or metropolitan aiming to escape the city's overwhelming atmosphere.
Retreat to Aso for a rejuvenating visit at any one of their many attractions, including thermal hot springs like Akamizu Spa, Uchinomaki Spa, or Sensuikyo. The vista from the cable car near Mount Aso is especially awe-inspiring for its panoramic views of the commanding and powerful volcano.
