Oguni town is in the north east of the kumamoto prefecture, not far from the fukuoka prefecture and the Oita Prefecture.
The altitude varies between 450m and 900m, so the weather is pretty cooling in the summer. In winter there can be a lot of snow and ice, so please be careful.
There is no direct train to the town of Oguni, the closest station is the Aso station.
From both the kumamoto airport and the fukuoka airport, there are highway buses but not many every day.
Because it is a mountainous region, we do recommend that you rent a car.
【Direction for cars】
We know that the map next to the giant buddha in Ueda has mistakes on it.
Please be careful when using local maps.
Note: Because of the recent earthquake, the road 57 from Ozu to Aso is cut.
