It's worth going. It's great to go to the volcano by bus after arriving at a lovely railway station on a distinctive Asu Boy's train. It's a beautiful journey, passing through the grass thousands of miles and the volcano museum, and looking out at the snow-white smoke coming from the volcano outside the window. This is the only active volcano open to the outside world. Unfortunately, due to smoke, the cable car was out of service and failed to reach the crater. Next time you have a chance, you must go again.
Mount Azu has stopped the cable car since the Xiongben earthquake. There are not many tourists here. I take the cross-section bus to Azushan Station in the Xiongben Transportation Center, and then change to Mount Azu on the bus. Jiuzhou cross-section bus can be purchased online in advance, so when waiting for the bus at the station, the driver will first call your name on the bus, because the seats on the bus are limited, can not stand, if you go late, it is likely to take extra seats, or even no seats. When you get to the top of Jianshu Mountain at 8:00, you can see the prospect of Mount Asu, but because the cable car has stopped, you can't observe the crater at close range. Fortunately, on the way down, there are helicopters that can ride 5000 yen a person to visualize the whole crater.
The Ashu volcano erupted in September, causing a continuous eruption of volcanic ash, so this time we can not go to the crater, we can only look at the foot of the mountain. Even so, it still feels very spectacular, and it's interesting to see the smoke gushing up and down, and it's obvious that it's an active volcano. In addition, bottled milk in rest stations must not be missed, even in the whole island country, it is by no means the best quality.
I went in June. The scenery is beautiful and pleasant. The volcano is opposite to me. It's a pity that I can't touch it close because of some special reasons. But my heart is beating. The sky is red. How can I escape from the scene when the fire breaks out? The guys are in the parachute, the answer has been told us! (Wind direction is important)
On November 10, 2015, the crater of the Ashu volcano was still closed and could not be visited. After stepping off the train from Azu, the right side of the exit is the bus stop to Azu Mountain. There is a ticket machine inside which you can buy tickets directly. If you forget to buy a ticket, you can put in cash when you get on the bus and get off at the station. It's very cold on the mountain. Remember to keep warm. The grass is 1,157 meters above sea level. It's much colder than the flat ground. I didn't see the crater this day. I'll compare my character next time.
Ashu volcano is a very active ropeway erupted by active mountain since last year. As I expected, it closed a bottle of milk that only had milk and ice. Fortunately, a small cup bought me two cups of milk in one breath. It tasted very strong, but it was not as exaggerated as it was written on the strategy.
Don't rush to buy tickets after getting off at Asu Station, just wait for the bus at the bus stop, because there are buses, and the bus can also buy tickets when it arrives and gets off. The bus rides up the mountain with picturesque scenery. Because of the volcano eruption, the climbing ropeway stopped, and the smoke from the crater slowly flowed in the distance. It was beautiful, but the air smelled of sulphur, so I didn't stay long.
Asu volcano is a large active volcano in Japan, located in Kumamoto County, Kyushu, Japan. It is the symbol of Xiongben. It is famous for its compound volcano with a large caldera. It is a residential hot spring resort. Unfortunately, due to the frequent volcanic movements in recent years, it has not been close to the crater.
