Ebino-kōgen Eco Museum Centre

Nature Centre in Kirishima-Kinkō-wan National Park

This attractive, lodge-like tourist centre has information, maps, models of the area's wildlife, topography and nature (in easily understandable English) and helpful staff. There's a video of the 2011 eruption of the Shinmoe-dake volcano and important info about daily volcanic eruptions for hikers. If conditions don't permit you to get out into nature itself, this is a good stand-in.
