Demon Forged Volcanic Park – Onioshidashien

It’s no surprise that Japan is full of active volcanos, being on the Ring of Fire and all. But it is surprising to find a walking path around the devastation created by a massive volcano in the almost center of Japan in 1783.

Enter “Onioshidashien” which most likely refers to the locals believing that a demon inhabited the mountain and pushed out all these rocks.

Comical rendition of how this place came to be. Thanks to @Gaijin.Suzuki for making this awesome comic!

Come join this little adventure into the middle of nowhere, enjoying the scenic view of what must have been mayhem hundreds of years ago.

Check it us out!
