Photo Gallery


Sumiyoshi-ike maar provides a backdrop to a campground on the south side of the lake. The 500-m-wide maar was created about 7000 years ago. Sumiyoshi-ike and Yonemaru are two maars that formed in coastal lowland deposits north of the Aira caldera during a period of rising sea level at the beginning of the Holocene. The larger, 1.2-km-wide Yonemaru maar erupted about 2 km west of Sumiyoshi-ike about 6500 years ago.
