Everyone who has seen Tokyo, Japan knows that it is an exciting place to visit. There are bright lights and millions of different things to see. It is a place where you can even take a thrill ride on a go kart driving down the bustling city street or watch a robot show and see high energy laser light shows. However, one thing you may not know is that once you get away from those bright lights, you can truly discover what makes Japan a truly one of a kind area.
If you venture a little way outside of Tokyo, you will find the north coast. It is here that you can visit sand dunes and perhaps do a little hang gliding. If the dunes are not for you, perhaps you will want to see what can be done with those sand dunes and visit the Sand Museum.

It is only recently that it calmed down and it is no longer considered an active volcano, but that does not make it any less spectacular.
