The Aso area in Kumamoto Prefecture is home to Japan’s largest stretch of grassland, which is perfect to explore on an electric-assist mountain bike. Meet up at Michi no Eki Aso near Kumamoto Station, and head to Makino. There, cyclists can enter three exclusive areas that are off-limits to the public accompanied by a special pasture guide, and explore the natural beauty of Mt. Aso—an active volcano—to their heart’s content. Be sure to explore the rest Kumamoto has to offer, like iconic Kumamoto Castle, and soothe away your tiredness with a soak in a hot spring at the quaint Kurokawa Onsen.
