The Japan government has retained a portion of the ruins from the year 2000 Usuzan eruption in the hope that it will educate the people how to lessen the impact of future disasters. It's located just next to the Volcano Museum, near the Visitor Center. Admission is free but there's a donation box at the entrance where you can contribute to the preservation of these ruins. We were told that it's open only from end April to beginning of November.
Following the route, we saw the remnants of the building, and it felt kinda sad, lonely and abandoned while walking through it.
If you're interested, there's a hiking trail which will lead you nearer to the Konpira crater which erupted in year 2000.
Next to the ruins ground is the Volcano Museum, which will give you more background and history of the volcanic activities and eruptions, and also some facts and history of Lake Toya
