Yakedake rises above Kamikochi resort in the Northern Japan Alps, seen here from Taishoike pond to its ENE. It contains a 300-m-wide crater at the summit and craters are found on the SE and N flanks. Frequent small-to-moderate phreatic eruptions have occurred during the 20th century from both summit and flank vents. An eruption in 1915 produced a lahar that created Taishoike pond and killed the trees in the foreground.
