Hiking on Mount Aso: Eboshidake

For the visitors who want to enjoy a short hike on Mount Aso, Eboshidake is definitely a good choice. A two hours hike with views on Kusasenri, the Nakadake crater and part of the caldera. Visitors who prefer a longer hike or want to reach the highest point of Mount Aso (Mount Takadake 1592 meters high) can check this previous blog entry: https://www.aso-denku.jp/english/2020/09/hiking-on-mount-aso-the-hiking-trail-to-the-takadake-reopened/.

 

 

You can access Mount Eboshi (or Eboshidake) easily from the car parking in front of the Aso Volcano Museum. Buses from Aso station are available and you can check the schedule directly here: https://www.kyusanko.co.jp/sankobus/aso_sen/table/all_tt.pdf

Once on the car parking lot, Eboshidake will be just in front of you, standing beyond the vast grassland of Kusasenri. You can’t miss it! As I said it takes about two hours to climb it and come back to the Volcano Museum. You just need to be careful of the weather. Some parts of the hike can be muddy and slippery even the next day of a raining day. You can check a detailed map for the hike made in collaboration with the Volcano Museum staff below.  

 

 

You can start your hike from the left or the right flank of Eboshidake. Both are worth it so I recommend you to just go all the way around. The 360 degrees view at the top is beautiful. The usually fuming Nakadake crater, the Kusasenri grassland just below your eyes and good part of the caldera is visible from there. Just after the earthquakes, it was also possible to see the huge landslide that occurred in Tateno.

 

 

The last time I climbed the Eboshidake was a little more than a year ago and writing these lines makes me want to go hike there again. As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask us on our English Facebook page. See you soon in Aso!

 

Franck.
