Guide to each city, town and village
Ubuyama Mura(village) is located in central Kyushu, in the northeastern part of Kumamoto prefecture. It is ringed by Mt. Aso, the world's largest caldera volcano, and by the Kuju volcano group and Sobo Mountain (together, said to be the "roof of Kyushu"), which offer visitors a sense of peace and relaxation. The area has vast meadows, a forest, and a pure stream running through it. Its plateau overlooks three famous mountains--Kuju, Aso, and Sobo--which spread beneath in a vast panorama. Ubuyama Mura is famous for its majestic scenery and clean mountain air and even in summertime temperatures rarely exceed 30 degrees C.
