Arimura Lava Observatory ありむらようがんてんぼうじょ

Experience a different Sakurajima. The panoramic view is the highlight of the observatory.

The observatory is located along a 1-km trail on a small hill in the lava field created by the great 1946 eruption. From here there is a clear view of impressive Sakurajima, the world famous active volcano, and Kinko Bay. As the observatory is close to the crater of the steep, cone shaped South Peak, you may hear roaring or explosive sounds from the crater that give quite a different impression of Sakurajima.
