A small lake occupies the floor of Shinmoe-dake crater and a persistent fumarole plume rises from its western wall. Shinmoe-dake is one of the most active volcanoes of the Kirishima volcano group in Kyushu. Small-to-moderate explosive eruptions have occurred from the 700-m-wide crater since the 17th century.
