Sakurajima International Volcanic Sabo Center (桜島国際火山砂防センター)

Nakasatsuma Area Hands-on Experience

At this facility, visitors can learn about debris avalanches and sabo, or erosion control, at the active volcano Sakurajima, in an easy-to-understand manner through videos and models.
Visitors can also learn more about Sakurajima's history and past major eruptions.
The Sakurajima VR Theater provides an impressive 360° drone view of the off-limits area, which is normally not able to be seen.
The center also monitors debris avalanches and the volcano's activity, as it is an evacuation facility in the event of a natural disaster.
