One of the most active Japanese volcanoes is located in the mountains of c and is named after Asama. The first of the documented eruptions occurred more than 1,300 years ago, and over the following centuries, the volcano showed its formidable temper many hundreds of times. One of the largest eruptions occurred in 1783; then about 50 surrounding villages and ten thousand people died. The most recent eruption was recorded in February 2009.
Despite this danger, in 1967 at the foot of the volcano was built a museum dedicated to both him and volcanology in general. But whether the museum was not popular or there was another reason, but has existed for several decades, in the summer of 1993 it was closed, moreover, in the “traditional” Japanese manner – they boarded up the entrances and left, leaving everything as it was. Over the past almost 20 years, many stands have been destroyed by both old age and people, however, there is still something to see inside.
