For those of you who still want to move your body, we recommend activities where you can fully enjoy the great outdoors of Minamiaso!
At the “Activity Center Minamiaso” located in “Asobo no Sato Kugino”, there is a bicycle rental service. The exhilarating feeling of cutting through the wind on a bicycle is exceptional. You can enjoy the unique scenery of Minamiaso, whether you’re touring the water sources or aiming for the top of Mt. Aso. They have everything from simple basket bicycles to e-bikes, and the electric assist makes it easy to ride. It’s a fun experience for everyone, from those who don’t usually ride bicycles to serious cyclists with their own bikes.

Mennoishi Trekking is a popular trekking course where you aim for a cave shaped like a cat, passing through forests and rocky areas. In recent years, it has been visited by many cat lovers as a popular cat spot. The stone that was once famous as the “stone that doesn’t fall” fell during the Kumamoto earthquake, but miraculously it didn’t break and remains on the trekking course. Now it’s known as the “substitute stone” that fell instead of job-hunting students and examinees, and it’s a power spot!

You can enjoy a leisurely walk through the countryside while feeling the seasons, “hand spinning of Japanese cotton” where you spin thread from cotton, and “herbarium” where you can use a variety of dried flowers, including roses from Minamiaso, in various crafts.
