A lahar during an eruption of Yakedake volcano in 1915 dammed the Azusagawa river to form the Taishoike pond, leaving these standing dead trees. The eruption began on 6 June 1915 from a 1-km-long fracture that extended from the summit down the ESE flank where about 50 vents opened, but the principal activity took place at the upper end.
