Mt ASO, Kyushu – Japan

    Newer Older

    Mt ASO sits in the center of Japan's southern island of Kyushu. Aso's old crater rim stretches 128 km in circumference and is claimed by the Japanese to be the largest active volcano on earth. The raw beauty of the countryside combined with the rich bounty of the land has made the area a natural paradise. Please view my Slideshow on Japan

    Latest: Planetary Tremors – Visitors to Japan have been told not to go within one kilometre of Mount Naka, after the volcanic activity at Mount Aso was raised from level one to level two.
