About
Jump straight into the life of the people living in the countryside surrounding Mt. Aso, the largest active volcano in Japan. At a small bicycle shop located 900 m above sea level, we will gear up for our adventures. We head out into the wide symbolic grass fields of Aso, a legacy of the areas deep culture. Through the tour, we will experience how the landscapes changes from fields to forests and small mountain villages. The bicycle lets us freely explore this amazing landscape. We will make one 3 hour stop during the trip to visit a local farmer. Only for this tour, they allow us to follow them into their fields where we harvest vegetables and learn about their organic farming. Together we make classic Japanese home cooking that utilizes locally produced food and ingredients of the season. Join us for a tour that allows for free exploration and interacting with locals and their culture. Be prepared for a day of new experiences in a part of Japan you have never seen before!

    Aso farm experience and Daikanbo lookout
    Max and Quynh took us for a farm visit and Aso lookout. The farm had 2 really cute ponies and we had great fun harvesting yam and daikon with Noriko and preparing our farm to table lunch with the family. Weather was good and we had a great view at the lookout.

    A great day learning more about rural Japan
    Max picked us up from the Ryokan we were staying at and drove us to a local village. A lovely couple then welcomed us into their home. We started off by getting the rice cooking on the stove, then we walked to a field and dug up some potatoes and then picked some spinach. They then helped us prepare the potatoes, spinach, and some mushrooms for lunch. We then sat down to eat the meal together. Lunch also included homemade tofu and miso soup, among many other small dishes. It was heartwarming to be able to talk to the Japanese couple with Max interpreting for us. It was the best food we have eaten in Japan. Max then drove us to a lookout point so we could see the Aso Caldera, and we got some lovely photos. I couldn't recommend this experience more
