Usuzan Ropeway

Zijia Chan

Mar 12, 2017

Usuzan is an active volcano which has erupted 4 times since 1900 and the most recent one was in year 2000.The Usuzan Ropeway brought us close to the summit of Usuzan where we saw views of Lake Toya, Usuzan largest crater and Showa Shinzan which was just beside Usuzan. Showa Shinzan was a young mountain which was created by the eruption of Usuzan in 1944.

There were souvenirs shops and a volcano eruption experience room at the ground level of the Usuzan Ropeway station. The volcano eruption experience room will vibrate as it showed the video of volcanic eruption to let visitors have a feel of what it's like when an eruption happens.
