Shirakawa Springs

Excellent place to see the water springing up from the land. It flows like a small stream. Many tourists collect fresh water from the spring for drinking. Ultra clean environment and ultra clean water are the attractions of the site . One should see the place to.understand the spring phenomena.

Aso Farm land

Reviewed By Nelumbo-Nucifera - Singapore, Singapore

Aso Farm Land is a large resort dedicated to health and nature. The resort has a hotel, restaurants, health spas, public baths (onsen), shops and convenient stores. Visitors can stay at the hotel’s rooms that are shaped like round domes. There are also Playgrounds for children.

There are many shops selling health products like herbal teas, vinegar, milk soaps and healthy snacks.
After visiting the shops, we went to a 140-year old building that served spit-roasted meals (takamori dengaku).
Dengaku is a local specialty. The food items are covered with a layer of miso and heated by burning coal. We sat on cushions looking at our food and smelling the nice aroma while waiting for the food to be cooked. The items were delicious especially the tofu and the sweet sauce.

It was a surprise!
As we are a tourist that just dropped by the place and take a look without too much expectation, the founder showed up and explained us how he started it 15 years ago...and showed us his works and his " invention" the blue bee!!
Wonderful experience!

Kenny Road

Reviewed By Tanya M - Fukuoka, Japan

Riding around Aso is always fantastic for the roads and views. Kenny road (you can google "green road" or "グリーンロード南阿蘇 展望所") was probably a fantastic road before the earthquake, mudslides, etc. in Kumamoto. My friend and I traveled on it August, 2017, and it's a wonderful road for views. However, for motorcyclists, there's some overgrown, overhanging bush on some corners and on the road which narrows the road and hampers vision. There are also some weeds coming up through small cracks in the asphalt, which make things a bit less fun. So many other roads need to be repaired in the area right now, so I guess it will take a bit more time to do some upkeep on this road. If you're riding in the area, by all means, go find Kenny Road and take some photos. However, if you're short on time, enjoy the milk road.

Aso Sarumawashi Theater

Reviewed By koromi - Matsue

昭和の香りの漂うとてもレトロな観光施設。見せ物も時代遅れだが、そこが逆に今となってはおもしろい。申年だからか個人的には阿蘇でいちばん楽しめた観光地だった。お客さんが少ないのが心配になるほどだったので、ぜひ多くの人に来ていただいて、盛り上げて欲しいと願っている。完全な写真撮影禁止は残念。パフォーマンス終了後に猿といっしょに撮影させてくれたらいいのにと思った。

Mt.Tawara Observation Deck

Reviewed By 裕幸 坂

 雄大な阿蘇山を南西から眺望できる好ポイントですが、数年前パイパスが開通した影響で通行量が激減したせいでしょうか、この展望台に至るまでの道路管理が不十分です。
 訪問時(平成29年7月16日時点)の状況ですが、路側の草は伸び放題、一部には道路中央まで竹が倒れ掛かっているかと思えば、数か所、路肩から流失した土砂が道路表面に堆積した箇所が散見されるという有様でした。
 自動車はともかく二輪車で訪問される方は、注意が必要でしょう。
 また、西原村側から進行すると右側に位置しますが、案内標識もなく右折車線もない見通しの悪い三叉路を右折することになるので進入時にはこれまた注意が必要です。(逆に南阿蘇村側から進行する際は左折する形となり、「俵山」の案内表示があります)
 
 駐車場はありますが、トイレは震災の影響からか使用中止、周囲には自販機もありませんので訪問時には念頭におかれるといいかもしれません。
 以上、長文となりましたが、これから訪問される際のいささかでも参考になれば幸いです。

Isshingyo Park

Reviewed By swee12 - Iwakuni, Japan

We missed the pink and white cherry blossoms, but that didn't mean the tree was any less magnificent. Nice boardwalk and picture areas around 400 year old tree. Surrounding park has "medium golf." Smaller than real golf but larger than mini golf.

水源巡りをし、ここに立ち寄る。線路沿いの小径の横にこぢんまりとあるが、湧出量はなかなかのもの。この辺りは清らかな水の源が沢山あってホントうらやましい。また立ち寄ります。

Aso Bridge

Reviewed By ペガサスあい - 熊本市

私にとってとても愛着のある橋でした。
地震の後崩落、跡形はしっかりと見て取れます。
国道57号線及び325号線ともには通行止め、
南阿蘇村の東海大学方面からですと橋のあったところのすぐ近くまで行くことができます。
