Aso Nakadake Crater

Japan, Kurokawa, Aso City, Kumamoto Prefecture 869-2225

The Aso Caldera, with its rugged lava rock surface, is one of the largest in the world, measuring 18km from east to west and 25km from north to south. Among the five Aso mountains (Nekodake, Takadake, Nakadake, Eboshidake, and Kishimadake) that rise in the center of the caldera, Mt. Nakadake is still active today. Nakadake has a diameter of 600m and a depth of 130m. At the gigantic crater with a circumference of 4 km, you can see the dynamic scenery and the appearance of white smoke rising up close. When the volcano is active, you may not be able to get close to the crater.
