  • During a trip to Hokkaido in Showa-shinzan came a couple of times, but for the first time came in Museum of volcanoes. Showa shinzan was looking at could know about the origin of the greatness of the volcano and surrounding terrain, this area more like a round feel. Can see the theater about the volcano, you can experience tremors and volcanic sound equipment. Line a crushed volcanic activity also was on display.

  • I think leaving the physical dangers of pyroclastic flows, convey is very nice. I think I saw fresh damage, take is very important in considering future disaster. I think they are going to visit and if you stripped points can be looked at closely if you have time, turn the time without.

  • 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
