Volcanic activity is still present in the Hakone area. If you take interest in this natural phenomenon, visit the Hakone GeoMuseum, located at the very center of volcanic activity in Hakone: Owakudani. Here, you can learn about the volcanoes and beautiful nature of Hakone. At the Geo Hall, you can learn about the history of the terrain of nearby areas such as Owakudani, Lake Ashi, Sengokuhara and Hakone Onsen, which was shaped by volcanic activity. Both children and adults can have a great time here.
