  • Sunasenrigahama
    Travel / Tourism
    Aso City, Kumamoto Prefecture Aso Mountain, Kurokawa
    A natural landscape located in Aso City. At the site of an ancient caldera situated southeast of the Nakadake Crater on Mt. Aso, visitors can take in scenery consisting of a continuous stretch of black sands. The site serves as a contrast to the picturesque grassland known as Kusasenrigahama, also on Mt. Aso. Access may be restricted at times due to volcanic gasses emitted by Mt. Aso.
  • Okoshiki Beach
    Travel / Tourism
    Kumamoto Pref. Utoshi Shimoodamachi
    "A coastal area located in Uto City. Literally translated, ""Okoshiki"" means ""palanquin,"" a name that is derived from a legend which states that when Emperor Keiko toured Kyushu, his eyes were arrested by the beauty of the coastline and he ordered his palanquin to stop. The scenery has been selected for inclusion in a list of Japan's 100 best beaches and 100 best sunsets. On clear days, visitors can see all the way to Mt. Fugen in Nagasaki on the opposite shore. The ebb and flow between the tides here is also the greatest of any location in Japan, and during the ebb tide, the exposed sands create beautiful curing patterns."

Kumamoto Areas

around-area-map

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
