About
This is a unique chance to experience life in rural Japan through a local's eyes. Access areas and meet people that would be impossible without the presence of the guide. Enjoy unique interaction while delving into true Japanese farm life. All while having your own private guide who is knowledgable and can explain about the history and nature that has turned this volcanic plateau into an agricultural paradise. But more than anything, this tour aims to be about interaction with locals. As a guide, I wish the meeting between visitors and locals to feel like me introducing friends to each other. The area around Mt. Aso is one of Japan's best-hidden treasures and this is your shortcut to experiencing it. True Japanese culture, food, hospitality, and much much more. Take a chance, step off the beaten track, and come join us for an amazing time in Aso!

What to expect
This tour will give you a deep understanding of the unique environment born through Japan's largest active volcano. Plentiful, crystal-clean groundwater that gushes forth from natural springs to support lives and enable flourishing agriculture. Visit a small remote society of only 13 households that exist surrounding the natural spring of Tateiwa. Explore the stunning nature in this area and get to know some of the local people who live here. Together we harvest vegetables and prepare local cuisine for lunch using fresh ingredients. After we leave Tateiwa, we will make a quick visit to another place that is enabled by the volcano and symbolic for the area, a hot spring. And this is not any old onsen, we will head to "the most embarrassing onsen in Japan"! Our last destination is a young farmer who lives by utilizing the blessing of clean water of Mt. Aso. He protects the original way of growing Shiitake mushroom on natural wood. Something possible thanks to this unique environment. Eat, speak, laugh, and explore. This tour will give you an insight into a side of Japan and life-styles that you have never experienced before. Join us and feel the blessing of the water!
