Papersky’s Tour de Nippon project is about finding the magic of Japan’s rural districts, their inhabitants, nature, culture and food. We travel to various prefectures and ride bicycles. Traveling via bicycle allows us a clean and healthy way to explore Japan’s rural areas.
The Aso caldera is one of the largest volcanic features of its kind, measuring 25 km north to south, 18 km east to west, and 128 km in circumference. It stands in Aso Kujū National Park in Kumamoto Prefecture, on the island of Kyushu. Its peak is 1,592 metres above sea level. The valley is a global rarity home to fertile land, human communities, and even a railway. Join us on a virtual ride as we cycle Minami Aso Village and take in its nature and culture.
