This is a new and beautiful museum. I'm a geologist, so I didn't think I'd learn much new stuff, but it was really well presented and talked a lot about the local terrain. It was a great prelude to visiting the hiking trails above the...More

There are not that many man made locations to visit in Hokkaido and Toyako is no different. The Volcano Museum, while not earth shattering😣😄, is a decent venue to learn if the evolution of the local mountain within a km of where you will be....More

There's not a lot to do in Toyako in the winter, but we were interested in the museum. Unfortunately, the day we were there it was closed for maintenance, whatever that means. It would be nice if they'd put this on the website. Walking there...More

It's a must to visit if you are in lake Toya area; it's help you to better underhand this volcano and how the local governments prevent the disaster before and when the vocalno explored. Suggest to visit the vocalno (火山口) after you visit the museum.More

Small museum that showcase the volcanic activities around Lake Toya. Nothing much to see except for a 15 mins show with tremors to simulate earthquakes. The museum has very little collection, mainly aftermath of the volcano eruption. Come here only when you have time to...More
