the colorful lands and waters of Bungo nurture all lives
Bungo Ono stands on grounds which were completely buried under the pyroclastic flow from a huge eruption of the Aso volcano around 90,000 years ago.
As time passed, water began to flow into the area, bringing life and abundance back to the land.
Land and water are the sources of all life, supporting and connecting all forms of “inochiki.”*
We see these various types and ways of life as colorful.
*“Inochiki” is the word for “livelihood” used in Oita dialect.
