The Asamayama Volcano Observatory, operated by the University of Tokyo, is a base for geological, geophysical, and geochemical monitoring of the active volcano. The observatory is located on the E flank below Ko-Asamayama, the late-Pleistocene lava dome in the background that formed about 18,000 years ago.
