Toya Caldera and Usu Volcano Global Geopark was the first geopark in Japan, as designated by Global Geoparks Network in August, 2009. The unique geological features created by volcanic activities and the surrounding nature were acknowledged to be worthy of reserve. There are well-managed walking trails, approximately 20 museums and information centers for the study of geoscience and/or geoheritage, and many outdoor sightseeing spots.
The geopark spreads over Date City, Toyoura Town, Soubetsu Town and Toyako Town.
