Unzen Disaster Memorial Museum Gamadasu Dome

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.
