Archery in a Volcano on the Izu Peninsula

What images come to mind when you think of archery, and doing it in a volcano? Fiery lava? Robin hood swinging on a rope over said lava, bow in hand?

Believe it or not, you can practice your archery skills in the crater of a dormant volcano - Mt. Omuro - located in Ito, Shizuoka.

I've done it twice, and it's a lot of fun. You can also hike around Omuro's perimeter and even go paragliding, so I've heard.
