Unzen Disaster Memorial Museum Gamadasu Domeがまだすドーム

Memorial Hall

The museum was established to convey to future generations the “Great Heisei Eruption” of Mt. Unzen Fugen from 1990 to 1996. The memorial hall has been built on the spot that was damaged by the eruption and which was originally sea. From the observation point, you can view the Ariake Sea and Mt. Unzen Fugen together with the new sight of the revitalized town. Experience type programs with varying contents are also held. It is a 10-minute walk from the “Arena Iriguchi” bus stop.

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
