Photo Gallery


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.
