Experience the magnificent nature of Aso from the air. Seeing Komezuka and the smoke rising from Nakadake Crater from close-up is a very impressive sight. Make the most of your jaunt through the open skies, with a veteran pilot acting as your knowledgeable guide. This is the kind of experience that allows you to see the world in a new light.
