Kario Main Line, Aso City Road
Kario Main Line can be clearly characterized by the terrain which protrudes out like a cape. It almost appears like the road is floating in the sky when a sea of clouds fall around the Aso Basin - hence the reason why it is commonly referred to as "Laputa Road". This phenomenon only occurs when there is an extremely rapid change in temperature between the morning and afternoon, or afternoon and night. Therefore, the best season to visit to see this phenomenon would be between fall to early winter. < br> *Unfortunately Kario Main Line was damaged in the Kumamoto earthquake which struck in April 2016. It cannot be guaranteed when the area will be fully repaired.
