By the time I got back in the car my feet were grey, my shoes a mess, my camera happy. This is the area close to Mount Aso in Kyushu that you are currently allowed to walk in. In September this volcano erupted unexpectedly, luckily no one was harmed but now there is a 2km no go zone around the volcano due to continuous activity and poisonous gases. Walking around here you are constantly kicking up ash and the area feels like you are on another planet. It is a shame that you can no longer look into the crater of the volcano but it is still a cool place to visit.
