Arimura Lava Observatory
有村溶岩展望所

  • Mountain View

Arimura Lava Observatory is located at the southern foot of Sakurajima Island

which was made on the lava field of 1914 in Arimura Village.

Lava field opening to one side and black pine setting on roots on the lava create a unique scenery.

There is a promenade of approximately 1km in total length, and not only the lava but also the view is splendid.

A different Sakurajima will be seen from here, a combination of two mountains may be seen.

Sakurajima Island changes its image depending on the view spots.

The active crater is near from here, and on hearing the eruption sound, visitors may feel the power of the volcano.
