\Guide’s recommendation/
We will talk about life in Aso, blessings and myth that came from the volcano as we stop by historical sites and fountainheads while cycling though the countryside where traffic is not frequent.
Every fountainhead has its own history, the taste also varies due to the difference in geological features.
It is also fun to compare the taste of water while thinking of the history and myth of Aso.
To make it more enjoyable, it is recommended that you bring your own plastic bottle or water bottle to take the water home.
