You can see a shine gate which was buried volcanic ash.
The ash falled more than 2meter in one night....

Here is modern day Pompeii.

A buried shrine gate reminds of powerful volcano eruption many years ago. It is preserved for historical value.

It has been there buried in ashes for a hundred years. Originally 3 meter high, only the top of the Torii emerges about 1 m above ground. The landmark is well sign posted but you may miss it if you are not attentive.

One of those cool things to see. It seemed pretty far out of the way, but if in the area check it out for sure. I only got a picture from the bus tour I was on, but it was still cool.
