Various elements that make up your body, gold rings that shine on the fingers of precious partners, rare metals used for smartphones, all synthesized in the life of the stars and brought to us. If we speak from the perspective of the space level, we are just "stars of the star".

volcano- " limited time " beat of the earth living


sometimes gently, sometimes rough. circumference 128 km aso volcano boasting the prestige of the world's largest caldera, surrounded by outer ring mountains ranging in size. 2014 it is recognized as a world geopark in the year, and it is popular as a "earth park" which is a geoscientific heritage.


most of the energy source of aso volcano was brought about by the birth of the earth. heat due to the collapse of the elements contained in the crust, frictional heat when heavy metals settle down to the nucleus of the earth, impact and compression heat caused by the falling meteorite, etc. ... .


Actually, the energy that makes these volcanoes is finite and is gradually lost little by little from the earth. At the end of a long time, like the moon floating in the night sky, the time will come when the earth becomes a star stopping activity without volcanoes.


Through a trip to Aso volcano, we will experience the beat of the earth living in a limited time just like we do.




prairie - 1000 nature and human activities over the year


Aso Kuju National Park is about "half the grassland area in the national park nationwide", the so-called "kingdom of the meadow".


Actually, this vast prairie is not made in nature. It has protected the wilderness where the volcanic meadow spreads originally by the hand of man.




Through the Great Prairie of Minami Aso, you can feel the nature and people's activities that last for over 1000 years.

Especially the southern Aso prairie is a rare place where all three elements of stars, volcanoes and grasslands are available. Every human has a memory that I have looked up to the star of the meadow through millions of years since its birth.
