Camping in Kuju Bogatsuru: climbing two peaks and overnight stay in an open field in every season

Enjoy Kuju's grand natural scenery

Kuju Bogatsuru camping site is at 1,230 meters above the sea level in the Aso Kuju national park and it is in a registered site under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. The wide open wetland is surrounded by the Kuju mountain range including Mt. Kuju and Mt. Taisen and a popular place among campers. Surrounding mountains are covered by picturesque rhododendron flowers in early summer, red and yellow leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. At night, the sky is filled with twinkling stars. The camping site is accessible by two hours' walk from Chojabaru parking lot or Kuju-tozanguchi bus stop. At a ten-minute walk from the camping site is a mountain cottage Hokkein Onsen Sanso, where you can relax your body and soul in a natural hot spring bath.
