Field Excursions


The following pre-, intra- and post-conference field excursions, A, B and C respectively, will be offered, including a CEV (commission of explosive volcanism excursions) field workshop. Excursion leaders will communicate with registered participants on details of the excursions and possible modifications. The excursion fee includes accommodation plus transportation during the excursion. Concerning meals, check the descriptions blow. The excursion fee does not cover the travel cost between the starting or terminating point of the excursion and Shimabara, except for A5, A6, A7, A8, B1, C1, C2 and C5. Participants in these excursions should make their own travel arrangements, for example, through travel agencies in their own countries. Excursions leaders may suggest possible routes and times. Also, participants having any special meal requirements should contact leaders in advance.

In addition, since the organizing committee cannot bear the responsibility for accidents that may occur during these field trips, participants should purchase travel insurance through their travel agencies.
