Y2J Tour : Arimura Lava Observatory

This is a shelter.
Its a good shleter from the sun, which can be quite hot, but it wouldn't last long with a few hundred thousand tons of ash on it.

The views of Sakurajima is great, but turn around and behind the shelter is a great view of the bay and its islands.

This is one of my favourite pictures.
