After the ever heavy breakfast, we headed towards Mt Aso ..
on the way there we made a pit stop because we got lost.

a station for battery operated cars to charge their batteries

and seeing that theres a souvenier shop selling all the different kinds of japanese Sweets, We loaded up the car with them!! Then, we continued on

almost there


Spot the bear

and finally!!!!

阿蘇山 - active for that day we couldnt go up

Horse meat skewers 🙂 YUMM

we bought a stick to try .. and surprisingly, it tastes like beef and lamb mixed together (if i really had to describe it). Slightly grainer version of the two combined together .

sweet potato mochi?

battery operated car recharging

We decided to head off somewhere else for lunch, since the whole area and museum seemed so touristy. So we just headed around found a ramen place. But sadly, this is one of the suckiest ramen that I ever had in the whole Japan trip. The broth sucked, and everything was just average ..

Sauces to add to ramen


sucky ramen : only the egg and char siew is nice

This was one of the better option – We all liked this better than the ramen

charsiew rice

We (my family) eat innards .. like we go for bah kuet teh and we do order innards .. but .. this one was just mushy all the way .. and just had a weird smell to it ..

fried intestines - ordered by mistake

we were disappointed our first ramen of the trip turned out like that ..but because we were always caught up with the attractions and lose track of time, we always don’t make it in time for lunch .. so beggars can’t be choosers ;/

then we headed to the Takachiho [canyon Segawa Goka]

”]”]Really awesome! although do be warned to drive in and out of the place, the road is so narrow that only 1 car can pass at each time!! the turns are very very sharp! so do becareful!


Spot the Stalk!!

Huge!! long fish!

We think they keep these fishes for like freeing purposes

after the years of erosion

All crowding around the stall for warmth

and of course, to end off the journey before heading back to dinner:

Homemade doughnuts
