The rugged landscape of Miyakejima has been formed from repeated eruptions of Mt. Oyama, a still active volcano located in the center of the island. When Mt. Oyama erupted in 1983, it sprayed a fountain of lava 100-meters into the air, covering part of Miyakejima’s Ako District, and leaving a natural pathway in its wake. In 2007 this walking path was completed, incorporating the flow of the mountain’s lava trail.
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.
