Day 5 - Super Long journey to Mt Aso National Park 阿蘇山, Asosan-> Mt Aso Museum (cable car was suspended due to bad weather )

It was a super long journey from Kagoshima to Mt Aso. Passed by Mt Aso Farmland resort before reaching Mt Aso.
Rest stop

Ropeway station to Mount Nakadake's crater but ropeway was closed due to bad weather. Visited the Mt Aso Museum instead.

Lunch was at one of the shops near the museum. It was a buffet lunch but food was made from cheap ingredients and was canteen-like.

Enroute to Beppu

Mt Komezuka is a small, beautifully shaped volcanic cone on the northern slopes of Nakadake

Rest stop before making our way to Beppu. By the time we arrived, the blood pool had closed. And it was still drizzling. A pretty uneventful and unfruitful day. We practically spent whole day in the bus. Sigh!
