This experience is really amazing! Flying over the volcano in a helicopter is almost sur-realistic. Also staff is very very friendly and want to make sure you have the ride if your live!

This is a must do so you can enjoy the view of the beautiful landscape of the area and the crater of Mt Aso!!!!! It is stunning! We took the helicopter at the spot near the crater entrance instead of the theme park.

Especially when you only have one day and the crater area is closed, take the opportunity to see the crate from above. It's a unique experience.

Travelling uphill from Mt Aso station to the crater kept us excited throughout the journey. When we were finally close up with the volcano crater, the scene of volcano smoke was amazing.
