After the massive explosion that was the eruption of Mt.
Pinatubo in the Japanese prefecture of Kumamoto in 1945, there was an abundance of ash and debris, as well as the potential for disaster.
The man behind the volcano was an accomplished volcanologist, and he had an idea for a way to dispose of all that ash.
He decided to build a giant ash dump, and the first dump was a wooden house in the middle of a park.
That’s where it all began for the legendary gum man, a Japanese word for ash, the kind that erupts from volcanic vents.
Nowadays, the ash dump is a popular tourist attraction, but it’s a very different place than it was then.
Its name comes from the fact that the dump was actually constructed by a Japanese monk and was built to protect the monastery from a volcano that was about to erupt.
The dump was called Mt.
Kureikan, which means “fire-proof.”
It was built in the early 20th century and was eventually dismantled by the local government.
But now, the dump sits on the hilltop of the monastery.
It is now an amazing place to see the remains of the old dump.
Here are a few photos of the dump, which you can see more of on the museum website.
Kurutaka Kureika is the place where the dump once stood, and its site was designated a National Historic Site in 1999.
It was used as a tourist attraction for many years, and it was visited by the likes of John Lennon, Queen Elizabeth II, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, and others.
You can see it here.
The ash dump that sits on Mt.
Kanonogi is an amazing photo op.
I love the way the lake, which is the largest in Japan, turns into a volcano.
It’s not exactly what you’d expect, but its the sort of thing you might expect from a volcanic eruption.
