Daisen last erupted in the Pleistocene, per the Global Volcanism Program.

According to Wikipedia, one of the most popular destinations here is Genbudo Park, with its five caves and lovely basalt columns, but let’s look at views of Toyooka, too.



I like it that UNESCO geoparks include the human aspects of places, too.
