Mount Aso is a huge caldera area, 25km across and over 100km in circumference, one of the largest in the world. In the center of this outer rim is an active volcano, Nakadake (1506m), which has erupted several times in recent years. This volcano has a crater lake and a ropeway takes you to the crater's edge when it is not dangerous.

Tourist attractions include Kusasenri, the green carpet of pasture with cattle and horses, and Yonezuka, a cone-shaped mountain (954m) that offers walking trails and good views of the sprawling outer rim. Monkey Showman Theater shows comical plays staged by monkeys, and Aso Farm Land offers petting zoo, amusement facilities and hot spring experience. Along the ring of mountains, you can find several good onsen resorts.
