Daikanbo is a mountain which is part of the Aso mountain range in Kumamoto Prefecture. It has a height of 936 meters. It is essentially a caldera formed by a great volcanic explosion a long time ago, becoming a popular viewing spot where visitors can see a fantastic panoramic view of Mount Aso and Mount Kuju. Nearby is also a mysterious view of what is called “Aso Gogaku” or five peaks of Mount Aso, which look like a form of Buddha lying on his back when seen from Daikanbo.

 

The name Daikanbo was given by well-known journalist of the Meiji up to Showa era Soho Tokutomi, whose hometown is Kumamoto. Before being named by Mr. Tokutomi, Daikanbo used to be called “Tomigahana.”
