Asama Volcano Museum
Experience and Study facility

We are temporarily closed from 11th April to 31th May.

Asama Volcano Museum is run by Naganohara town. You can learn about the history of Mt. Asama, its eruptions, and the nature in the area from models, displays and films. We can provide a tour guide if necessary (30-40min, free).

※Groups of over 15 people require a reservation. We also hold other events such as star observation sessions, and provide local information as part of the North Asama Geopark project.

Emergency food restaurant, shop, rest area

The emergency food restaurant ‘Kazan’ opened on July 16th 2016.
70 seats are available. Choose from 15 kinds of emergency food, including carbonara, peperoncino pasta, Japanese pilaf, and dry curry. Fees start from 370 yen. Takeaway is available, so you are also able to enjoy the food outdoors while enjoying the view. This is a rare chance to try emergency food!
There is also a rest area available for large groups of up to around 300 people, and a souvenir shop selling a variety of local products.
