The view on our drive to the location was amazing from Karuizawa. Mount Asama covered in snow was in sight at the last 5km. The formation of lava rocks were simply amazing.

The austerity of this place was humbling and beautiful. Worth a trip if you are at all interested in volcanology and the fleeting nature of life.

Spectacular views of mt Asama and the mountains of Nagano. Nice short walks through the lava rocks, kids got excited, and scenic views of Japanese temples and shrines along the way. It gets crowded during the Japanese holidays (beginning of August), so try to avoid.

The park was filled with large stones hardened from lava. It would be a nice walk on a fine day with some lovely views of the surrounding mountains. Other than that, I wasn't sure what the appeal of the place was.
