From Oyama to Oita prefecture (next side) to the falls and waterfalls of Harajiri!

Hello everyone. It is Ubuyama-Chan who is active as a community revival team in a mountain village that has reached a warm spring. Industrial mountain village is located in Aso-gun, Kumamoto Prefecture, but next to each other bordering on Oita Prefecture at the prefectural border! And it is located in a great location where you can also overlook the three mountains of famous Aso, Kuju, and grandmother (Kumamoto Prefecture, Oita Prefecture, Miyazaki Prefecture) in Kyushu, and I think it might be "Husea of ​​Kyushu?" You Such a mountain village is also XNUM X which forms "Aso Geopark" recognized as a UNESCO World Geopark.

The Aso region was certified as a member of the World Geopark Network at the 2014 World Geopark UNESCO International Conference in 6. Aso Caldera, the zone that constitutes the Aso Geopark, is located in central Kyushu, and is the largest in the world, with about 18km from east to west, about 25km from north to south, and an area of ​​about 350 square kilometers. In the central part of the caldera, there are volcanic groups that continue to raise volcanic smoke, and the outer mountain that surrounds the volcanic groups and the flat land, the outer ring, forming a gentle pyroclastic earth. There is no single mountain called “Mt. Aso”, but academically it is called “Aso Volcano” including these Mt.

In addition, there are XNUM X geoparks in adjacent Oita Prefecture. One of them, Oita Bungo Ono Geopark, which was recognized as Japan Geopark in 2, is a beautiful landscape of the Mt. Chimayama where magma penetrating the layer group about 2013 billion years ago and the Aso that occurred during the Aso mountain eruption It has a number of tourist attractions with distinctive topography, such as waterfalls and valleys created from pyroclastic flow deposits.

Aso pyroclastic flow deposit covers about 1 / 2 of Bungo Ono City, and cliffs of Aso-4 strong melting tuff and Aso-XNUM pyroclastic flow deposit are formed in each part of Ono River and its tributaries. In addition, cliffs of weakly welded tuff and non-fused tuff are also formed everywhere, and traces of supergigantic pyroclastic flow can be seen.

Both regions have developed and coexisted with a common natural environment. So what plays a major role is "water", which is similar to water systems. We report state that we tona (next side) lip to "Harajiri waterfall" of Oita to search for water flow from production mountain village this time!


Speaking of producing mountain villages, it has the XNUM water source, Ikeyama and Yamabuki water source, and is introduced as "Ikeyama and Yamabuki Geosite" in Aso Geopark. Ikeyama water source is one of the famous water 2 selections of the Ministry of the Environment, and abundant spring water of 100 ton comes out every minute, and Yamabuki water source is selected for Kumamoto famous water 30 selection.

Ikeyama / Yamabuki Geosite
Groundwater that has passed through the Aso pyroclastic flow has been pumped out due to the topography and geology where traces of global activity are characteristically expressed.

The benefits of pyroclastic flow can be seen not only in the mountainous villages but also in various places in the Aso area. Needless to say that Aso City in the huge caldera is also overflowing with the blessings of water. In Monzen-cho, one of the places near Aso Shrine, people who have visited for sightseeing are also ingenuity to enjoy in the tour of the water base!

A shy prosperous village with lots of sights to know. Based on the idea that "there will be a waterfall because it is a village that has 2 water sources," it was found by obtaining information from the villagers! "Kannon Falls" has a quiet appearance as a tourist attraction. This water stream meets the Inabagawa river in Soju Tsutomu, Oita Prefecture, in the river named Sangawa. This stream joins the main stream of the Ono River of the XNUM-class river representing Oita Prefecture and the east side of the Oka Castle in Taketa City and is poured into Beppu Bay. What a magnificent flow of water! It was so exciting to meet this waterfall and I was really interested in the Onogawa water system! I'm leaving to Tonarip for water!

Kannon Falls
If there is no signboard, ask a local person if you are lost to find it. You will be kind to me! It is said that this name comes from the fact that Kannon is hiding behind the waterfall pot.

From Sansan Village, turn left at Kamakura Crossing on Route 57. After that, you can go to Takeda city in almost straight line!
