Bike Tour Kumamoto to Aso: Sleeping Buddah on bed of clouds (Laputa)
-The asobi gokoro Guesthouse -Takachiho Gorge -Aso Mountain -Shirakawa Spring Water -Sleeping buddah on bed of clouds (Laputa) If you talked to anyone about going to Kyushu, the first place they will talk about is the Aso Mountain. It’s a active volcano that constantly spewed out volcanic smoke which sometimes made it inaccessible to tourists due to the heavy toxic smoke. Aso city is a town inside of a caldera that is 12 miles long and 8 miles wide. A natural phenomenon can’t even do justice for a caldera of this size and with about three active volcanoes in the middle and there were also unbelievable natural destinations that will touch your souls and will literally silence you for minutes in amusement, this actually happened to seven of us as we reached, “Raputa.”
The ride up to the caldera was bit challenging but the hard part is actually getting out of the caldera on the north end.
