Travel Guide - Kusasenri-ga-Hama


You will be amazed by the vast Kusasenri-ga-Hama (785,000 square meters), where a broad swathe of grassland spreads out widely at the foot of spectacular Mt.
Aso, lies in the remains of a huge crater one kilometer in diameter.
The ponds here are said to have been created by rainwater.
This landscape is also lovely in winter with a silvery, sparkling beauty.
Access to Kusasenri-ga-Hama is not restricted in any way, so you can enjoy picnicking or horse riding here.
The panoramic view of the five peaks of Aso seen from atop a horse is truly stunning.
Horse riding is even enjoyable for beginners, as the horses are expertly led by guides.
