The Global Volcanism Program has no activity reports for Shikaribetsu Group.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Weekly Reports available for Shikaribetsu Group.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Bulletin Reports available for Shikaribetsu Group.
Shikaribetsu volcano consists of a group of andesitic-to-dacitic lava domes west and south of Lake Shikaribetsu in central Hokkaido. The youngest domes, which were mapped as Holocene (Japan Association of Quaternary Research, 1987), were constructed along a ENE-WSW line south of the lake. The age of the latest eruptions is not known precisely, but is less than 20,000 years (Nakano et al., 2001-). The largest dome, Higashi-Nupukaushinupuri, was built at the SW, breached end of a horseshoe-shaped crater. Two or more large debris-avalanche deposits extend to the south.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Shikaribetsu Group. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Shikaribetsu Group 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.

|Shikaribetsu volcano, seen here from the SE, consists of a group of lava domes west and south of Lake Shikaribetsu. The youngest domes, which were mapped as Holocene, were constructed along a ENE-WSW line south of the lake. The largest dome, Higashi-Nupukaushi (left), was built at the breached SW end of a horseshoe-shaped crater, whose NE rim forms the small peak right of the summit. Two or more large debris-avalanche deposits extend to the south. No historical eruptions are known from the Shikaribetsu group.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
