Cycling in Mifune

Ricefields, wildflowers and kites swaying in the breeze

By Bonson Lam    - 1 min read

With wildflowers swaying in the breeze, green frogs in the grass and pleasant level roads, the countryside between Mifune and Aso Kumamoto Airport is a pleasant place for a stroll or a bike ride. The silos and green rice fields give this place a very agricultural feeling. You can reach here from the Kyushu Expressway. Just exit at Mifune Interchange, and take in the country North of Mifune off route 444 which runs towards Chisun and Kumamoto Mashiki Country Clubs.

I knew my future was destined to be with Japan the moment I flew from Sydney to experience the atmospheric lane ways of Kyoto last century. From the skies above Sapporo to the old charm of Naha's alleyways, I have been enchanted by the beauty and variety on every island. I am humbled to have met many distinguished people in my role as Regional Partner, especially the national living treasures of Japan, such as the doll maker to the Imperial Family.
