    It is a center of interpretation with a limited interest since it shows a little of the volcanic activity in the area information and other environmental aspects. It's okay if it rains to pass time because the facilities are modern. No more.

    The volcano science museum and visitor center was located in the same building. The visitor center (free) offers good information in english about the area and it was ample to learn about the volcanoes. If you'd like to enter the volcano science museum, it is 600yen per person. The second storey of the visitor center had a clear view of Mt. Yotei on a clear day. Parking is free, and it is the trail head to see a big volcanic crater.

    Both the visitor center (free) and the volcano museum (600¥ per adult, including a translated version of the 13 - minute movie shown periodically in the main auditorium) are well worth a visit, as they offer rich information on the history and echology of the area. Not to be missed.

    This is a very good museum and the audio guide in whatever language you choose is a great addition to the display. This exhibition leaves you thinking just how incredibly scary it must be to watch a volcano blow it's top. The damaged items in the museum display the destruction very well.
