In Tateno Gorge Geosite, we added to explain a close relation between a view of this site and Futagawa Active Fault, a part of Oita-Kumamoto Tectonic Line. In Uchinomaki Geosite, many hot springs did not work just after the Kumamoto Earthquake. We examined the reason, and could recover the hot springs. We introduced this recovering process in our tour. In Nakadake Geosite, we added to explain about phreatomagmatic explosion in October, 2016. And also we cooperated with the Ministry of the Environment to renew the explanations of the sign installed in National Park.
We opened educational program on "Aso Geopark" in Aso-Chuo-High School; volcanic activity in Aso, recovering activities from Kumamoto Earthquake disaster, sightseeing in Aso and maintenance in grassland. Exhibition of Aso Volcano Museums was revised based on a recent research result. Visitors can see the crater and the observational data which indicates a volcanic activity in real time.
