Visit the Akabakkyo Eruption Site on Miyakejima Island to get a sense of the power of volcanos. This small island south of Tokyo has an active volcano that has erupted multiple times in the past century. At the Akabakkyo site, you can explore unusual rock formations along a shoreline shaped by fire. For an alternate volcanic experience, head across the island and hike the expansive lava fields from the 1983 eruption, which buried the town of Ako.
