Tateyama Caldera Sabo Museum 富山県 立山カルデラ砂防博物館

The unknown side of Tateyama!

The Tateyama Caldera is one of the few collapsed areas in Japan with a unique natural environment created by volcanic activity and erosion. Located south of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route and the Midagahara plateau, this collapsed area with jagged ridges stands out. This museum will introduce you to how humans and nature interact along two themes: the “nature and history of the Tateyama Caldera” and “sediment control.” The exhibition hall includes dioramas, videos, and experimental stations to experience and learn about these two themes. The hazards brought about by the Tateyama Caldera and the sediment control that prevents disasters. How about coming to learn more about this other side of the beautiful Mt. Tateyama?
