The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Oki-Dogo. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Oki-Dogo page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

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.
