Kaimon volcano is the youngest and most prominent feature of the Ibusuki volcanic field at the southern tip of Kyushu, seen here from the N. It was constructed during the last 4,000 years and has produced the historical eruptions in the volcanic field. The Ibusuki field is located W of the Pleistocene Ata caldera and contains numerous small cones, maars, and the 4.5-km-wide Ikedoko caldera.  Photo by Lee Siebert, 1988 (Smithsonian Institution).
