Grassland guide tour 
草地巡禮聽起來很美、很仙、會是一趟很有收穫的旅程。今天我們跟著日本、德國高中生交流的草地巡禮,一起去阿蘇的草地下荻的草地牧野健行,一路上毒辣的太陽鞭笞著我們,戴著帽子、留著汗,我們仍奮力的往前走。綠油油的草跟咖啡色尚未種植稻作的土交接著,一直延伸到阿蘇山的邊緣才停止。因為健行的時間有點長(一小時多)我們穿著長袖長褲又曝曬在陽光下,我已經熱到分不清東西南北,只知道「喔!到終點了!」

在那之後,我們跟高中生們道別,他們去火山草千里繼續行程,而我們則稍做休息。當時,有一位我們稱為社長也就是大Boss的人,請我們吃牛奶冰淇淋!這次,讓我體會到什麼叫做胃口被養刁了,日本的牛奶冰淇淋真的是世界級好吃的啊啊啊啊!

爾後,阿蘇道之驛的大哥、大姐帶我們去大觀峰重遊,因為上次去大時候下雨起大霧什麼都看不到。這次天氣超級好,能見度很高,站在觀景台上,可以一覽阿蘇市的全景,甚至能夠看到隱藏在遠端雲霧後面的阿蘇火山!

那時除了拍照,我們也發現有人在一旁玩滑翔翼,本來學姊很想去一試,但十分可惜的是我們沒有時間可以體驗,在看完風景後就打道回府,我們也同時計劃著或許下一個假日,這裡就是我們的目標地!

今天一早我們就接到通知要和一群德國來的交換生還要日本的高中生一起去「荻岳」健行!起出行事曆上是寫著Grassland guide tour 草地巡禮,原以為是什麼草地運動,到了才知道原來是健行呀!
一早太陽就非常的大,道之驛的同事提醒我們要帶足充分的水,隨後我們就出發!

一路上,頭頂上的太陽真的是一刻都沒有少過,好熱啊~ 一路上一棵樹都沒有,因為導遊說這裡以前是給牛放牧吃草的地方,所以是一望無際綠油油的草原山坡地。路程約一個半小時,其實不會太累,只是真的好熱呀!穿著長袖長褲戴著帽子的我,德國人都問我你不熱嗎? 比起曬傷我想我還是乖乖穿著衣服好了!

其中導遊還有提到說之所以這邊會有那麼漂亮的綠地是因為他們每年都有一個阿蘇野燒的活動,每年1到2、3月,雜草會長至近10米高,為了防止叢林化、危害草原生態,必須在人工監控下將其野燒,當地農民自古有此習慣,但唯有如此,在經歷烈火後,等到4月左右,焦土裡將會再發出新芽,從而逐漸恢復原本的青翠面貌!

裡面有對於阿蘇野燒的詳細介紹哦!!
我們爬完山,在互相道別之後,道之驛的哥哥姊姊問我們這次來阿蘇還去了哪裡?講了幾個地點之後他看到我一臉失望地說著大觀峰,我說到上次很可惜下了大雨,我們拍了一張都是霧的照片就回來了,於是哥哥說可以再帶我們去一次大觀峰!哇!這次的風景真的跟上一次差很多!!  一覽無遺的全貌,全都盡收在眼底!真的是太美了!如果有機會來阿蘇旅遊的遊客記得一定要來喔! 天氣好的時候還能體驗飛行傘呢!IMG_3826


Today, we had notified to go to the "荻岳" with a group of German exchange students and Japanese high school students! The sun is blazing in the morning. The colleagues in Michi no Eki reminded us to bring enough water. There is no tree along the way because the tour guide said that this place used to be a place for cattle to graze.

The tour guide also mentioned that the reason why Aso has such a beautiful green lawn is that they have an Aso wild burning activity every year. Every year from January to March, the weeds grow to nearly 10 meters high, in order to prevent the forestation. This festival has a thousand years of history in ASO. Local farmers have this habit since ancient times. Until about April, the scorching soil will have new sprouts!!

【Harvest potato event in ASO】
July 27 
Today, we experience the potato harvest and grassland trail to Mt.Ogi. Actually, this was the experience I didn't have before. I realize that how exhausting the farmer are, even through the sun is really hot in the afternoon.They still need to go to work.
We went hiking in the morning. The scenery was really beautiful and the air was also fresh. I am not a person who loves hiking actually. However, during this trip I was totally fall in love with those nature and view.

I was sweating a lot when I was collecting the potato, because we used our hands to dig the soil. It was just soooo tired, but I think it is totally worth. I hope everyone can participate this kind od activity and know the hard work of the farmer.
