Want to know how the attitude of the Japanese people when facing a natural disaster?
Living in the area are familiar disaster, they are ready to face the worst of all possibilities. They always view and learn the science to find solutions. The results did not belong to himself, government built the historical sights that show how people often face a hostile nature.

I observed elongated rectangular museum. The building consists of three floors. As an academic, I have always been interested in any research that is popularly presented. That's why I visited the museum aso volcano on the island of Kyushu, southwest Japan. At this point I am trying to understand how the Japanese disaster caused by the volcano.

I entered the first floor of the museum. Here there is room information on the process, shape, type, and the efforts made in the area of ​​
Mount aso. At the back end of the hallway there is a door leading to the second floor. In this section presented evidence in the form of rock the eruption, as well as a large monitor monitors Peak Naka, one of the active peak Aso that we can see directly. In addition, there are simulations of the eruption of Aso with popular packaging. In that case, any layperson can digest agile premises.

On the top floor, visitors can enjoy a three-dimensional theater which presents documentary films Aso. On the same floor there is a terrace and binoculars to perceive the volcanic complex. I feel how the Japanese people continue to look for the best solutions so that they can live in harmony with nature.

Visitors can also climb small hills caused by volcanic eruptions and enjoy the beauty of the plateau with riding horses. On a hill, stands a stone monument to mark the death toll from the eruption of Aso.
Aso Museum Complex is popular. I was not surprised to find that so many visitors coming from all over the world. They want to see the volcano eruption biggest four occurred between 300,000 to 80,000 years ago.

After understanding the museum, do not be hasty to go from here.
We can feel a close-Aso caldera by cable car. I guarantee you will be amazed at the sight of an active caldera is so widespread. Diameter, up to 25 kilometers at an altitude of about 1,500 meters. Aso has five peaks: Naka, Taka, Neko, Eboshi, and Eshima. Naka ranks highest peak akftif until now. The government has set the area around the mountain into protected areas, including the majority of people's lives as farmers.
