Izu Peninsula which appears in the only Philippine Sea plate in Japan.
Because island where came over to from the south collided with the Japanese Islands, was pushed up, and stratum of submarine volcano which should be in the bottom of the sea originally appeared on ground, and "volcano was piled up by a more next volcanic activity on the volcano"; it is unusual at all (and is great!) It is place.
However, even if it is place that sees worldwide, and is rare, it is natural scenery for us who live, and there are not many people knowing to the constitution.
It may be useful for "environmental conservation" and not only "area activity" but also "disaster prevention" by knowing Izu Peninsula where oneself lives in from the topography, geological feature and aspects such as culture, the history, industry by it.
When there are local meeting and event, please ask for "home delivery of cooked foods" casually!
