Welcome to the Shigetomi Beach Nature House
The Nagisa Museum is located on Shigetomi Beach, overlooking Kinkowan Bay and Sakurajima Island, and is a facility for interacting with the nature of Kinkowan Bay. It introduces the creatures and natural characteristics of Kinkowan and the Shigetomi Tidal Flat.
Kinkowan Bay is a bay created by large volcanic eruptions and tectonic movements. Although it is a far-inland bay, it has a maximum depth of 237 meters, and also features the Sakurajima volcano and ocean floor volcanoes which are active even now, and are amongst the handful of active volcanoes in the world.
