We will visit the town and the ibisuki hot sand places and onsen. we would like to visit a nature park on our way up to Usuki where we visit the the Buddha statues by bike. because of the Kumamoto earthquake we are not able to visit mount Aso and the surroundings. Beppu we also skip. so we are looking for a nature park accessible by train or bus where we can stay in a little village and walk not to big trails. on the internet i can not find much. Do you have a advise? (Netherlands)
