Mt Aso

Mt Aso, located in central Kyushu, is a "must-go" place for tourist. It is so famous because it is one of the most active volcanos in the world and has the record of the world's largest caldera(abt 25 km in diameter).

That morning when we arrived at the station, it was exceptionally cold.

And then we took a ropeway up to the peak.

It SNOWED!!!!!

Argghhhhh!!! TL and I were only wearing thin sweaters and were totally unprepared for snow!

The following pictures depict 2 things

1) TL and me shivering in the snow.

2) Background shows one of the bigger craters. We can see a blueish liquid inside and it keeps emitting sulphuric smoke.
