  • In a video on a large screen placed in front, ceiling, side of the eruption of Mt. Usu to watch along with the sound of the bass-heavy speakers from the floor was impressive. At the booth of the 1977 eruption of experience with images and a vibrating feel of the eruption is amazing.

  • For 40 minutes, but it was raining on the day of the guide it to explained. Visit the estates went first had lava from the eruption at the time. It was explained that there were complex from this disaster was held here. Felt is cold now and the ground with ash, but indeed from this devastation was harsh indescribable do hard. By equal good fortune could be similar to buildings such as the elementary schools prevent intrusions, such as lava or volcanic lapilli can be seen. I'd include volcano science building, and one hour is not enough.

  • 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.
  • Nice hikes starting from this point. They have pamphlet in English.
  • Nice wooden building
