Muroto City has been recognized its value of geological heritage worldwide and became a single "UNESCO Global Geopark" in Shikoku. Dynamic crustal movements of the earth can be observed closely, and ideas and creativities of the people who have lived there can be found around the city. A guided tour is recommended to learn the geopark well. Muroto Geopark will be able to show a typical earth growing by earthquakes. It is a place to think about countermeasures towards the upcoming Nankai megathrust earthquake by learning from the people who had lived with the past major earthquakes.
