      Kyushu Hiking and Cycling Tour

      On the Kyushu Hiking and Cycling Tour, you’ll enjoy the wonderful natural scenery of Kyushu through hiking and cycling.

The setting for your trip is Mount Aso, one of the world’s largest active volcanoes and a dominating peak in central Kyushu. A large eruption in ancient times created a caldera 18 km east to west and 25 km north to south. The eruption reached Takachiho at the foot of the central Kyushu mountain range, where a deep valley was created. Still active to this day, this volcano makes us keenly aware of the overwhelming power of mother earth. In this tour, you will experience both the lives of the people of Aso, who cultivate the volcanic caldera, and the lives of people in Takachiho, who carry on Japanese myths as they live in harmony with the deep mountains and valleys.
