Mt. Shinmoedake Course

One cannot currently enter the Mt. Shinmoedake course due to the influence from the 2011 eruption of Mt. Shinmoedake. However, one can view the desolate Mt. Shinmoedake from other courses such as the Mt. Karakunidake course, the Lake Ōnamiike Course, and the Mt. Takachihonomine course. We’ll have to keep watching Mt. Shinmoedake to monitor the volcanic conditions and see how the view will change.
