The rugged landscape of Miyakejima Island has been formed from repeated eruptions of Mt. Oyama, a still-active volcano located in the center of the island. Lava flow from the 1983 eruption buried the Ako elementary and junior high schools, and their remains can be seen today.
A trek along the Volcano Experience Walking Path will allow you to explore the island’s volcano-crafted landscape, and meet the plants and animals that have amazingly continued to survive on this challenging terrain.
