Photo Gallery

Maru-yama cone is the low-angle peak at the left and Odoko-yama on the right in this offshore view of Oki-Dogo Island. The Oki-Dogo Islands, north of the SW Honshu city of Matsue, are largely Pleistocene in age. The Daimanji-san lava flow on Oki-Dogo overlies alluvial gravel containing an ancient water-jar, and the name Takuhi-yama ("Burning Mountain") may record a tradition of an eruption.
