UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARK
The ever-changing earth
The landscape of Toya Caldera and Usu Volcano Global Geopark changes every dozens years, resulting the ever-changing sceneries available in the area which makes the geopark a perfect place for appreciating the beauty of changing earth shaped by volcano eruptions.
Co-existing with the volcano
Although disasters have been brought by the volcano eruptions of Mount Usu for a long period, we learnt to co-exist with the volcano as we struggled. Through making predictions on the next eruption, we lower the damage done by the eruption to its smallest and enjoy beautiful sceneries, fruitful agricultural products as well as hots springs granted by Mount Usu.
