Landscapes of Two Overlapping Volcanic Belts


The Onidake Volcano Group extends to the eastern part of Fukue Island, the largest island of the Goto archipelago of Nagasaki Prefecture. The Onidake volcano group consists of five volcanoes: Onidake, Hinodake, Shirodake, Midake, and Usudake. The volcanic terrain was formed by an eruption that occurred 3 to 5 million years ago, overlapping with the mortar volcano formed by the second eruption about 50,000 years ago.


Onidake, a Perfect Location for Hiking


Covered with lush fields, Onidake offers an ideal setting for hikers. It boasts majestic and dynamic scenery unique to the volcanic islands of Kyushu. At the observatory halfway up, you will be amazed by the panoramic view of the beautiful blue ocean and floating islands.



How to get there


From Nagasaki Port, take the high speed ferry to Fukue Port (110 min). From there, take a 5-minute taxi ride to the Onidake Volcano Group.
