Izu Oshima Volcano Museum (伊豆大島火山博物館)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

One of the world's few museums dedicated to volcanoes. With a focus on records pertaining to Izu Oshima's 1986 eruption, visitors learn about volcanism, volcanic disasters, and disaster preparation. The eruption of Mt. Mihara at the center of the island was the first in 565 years as such a large-scale natural disaster that developed into a fissure eruption on the outer crater. The island had an unprecedented evacuation of the entire population, and records pertaining to it are considered crucial for future disaster preparation. Through various exhibits and a capsule that simulates exploring beneath the earth's surface, you learn more about the island's still active volcano and others around the world.

Reviewed:2020/11/01 建物からは海が見えて素晴らしいのですが
大島三原山の火山活動を中心にいろいろな火山に関する記録、解説物、溶岩が展示してあり、どこのスペースでも1986年全島避難時の噴火報道が流されていました。敷地は広く、立派な建物でした。前庭には昭和の初めに三原山火口を取材しに使われた読売新聞社名の入ったゴンドラ(?)が寂しく朽ち果てようとしていました。

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
