Hydrothermally altered rocks in the crater of Maru-yama lava dome are seen in the foreground of this aerial view from the NE. Maru-yama, which had a minor phreatic eruption in 1898, is part of the Nipesotsu-Maruyama volcano group, located in central Hokkaido east of Tokachi-dake volcano. The volcano group is composed of a number of overlapping andesitic-to-dacitic stratovolcanoes and lava domes along a NW-SE trend.

Cross-country skiers in the saddle between Nipesotsu-dake stratovolcano and Maru-yama lava dome approach the south side of 2013-m-high Nipesotsu volcano. The Nipesotsu-Maruyama volcano group, located east of Tokachi-dake volcano, is composed of a number of overlapping andesitic-to-dacitic lava domes constructed along a NW-SE trend. A minor phreatic eruption took place at Maru-yama lava dome in 1898, and fumaroles are present on one of its summit craters.
