Attraction details

Travelling uphill from Mt Aso station to the crater kept us excited throughout the journey. When we were finally close up with the volcano crater, the scene of volcano smoke was amazing.

We made a trip to Mt Aso when we stayed for a night at Kumamoto. It was a worthwhile trip. .awesome to see the huge crater of a still active volcano. We also love the feel of the place around Aso station..quaint and very peaceful.

It cost us 540 yen one way for the bus from Aso station to Mt Aso and then 1000 yen for the return ropeway, which I felt was not very worth\while.....very short distance . The total cost to travel from Aso station to Mt Aso and back to the station by bus and then by ropeway is 2080 yen.

A cheaper way if there is a group of 3-4 persons will be:

By taxi- can be hired from the Aso station for 6000 Yen for 2 hours

By bus , then walk to Mt Aso - doable...we saw some people doing that. If you have a pair of walking shoes, I think walking to the crater is worthwhile.....you get to enjoy the views as well as the clear crisp air..provided it is not raining.
