This monument was created in remembrance of a big musical festival held at this location in 2004. The monument is made from local volcanic lava material. It is rather big and impressive and was finished in 2006. This is typical a monument you either love...More

An odd stop on the Sakurajima Island view bus loop this is a large stone statue which was created in memory of a rock concert held on Sakurajima in early 2004. It is strange and I still don't know what to make of it. Not...More
