Asamayama is seen in here from the SE. The summit cone of Maekakeyama was constructed within an east-facing, horseshoe-shaped collapse scarp from the failure of Kurofuyama, whose rim forms the peak to the left of Maekakeyama. Ko-Asama is a flank lava dome that visible on the lower-right horizon. Photo by Tom Simkin, 1993 (Smithsonian Institution).
