Akagisan at the northern end of the Kanto Plain has a 3 x 4 km summit caldera that contains lava domes. Lake Ono, seen here from the SW with the summit of the volcano to the upper right, occupies the NE end of the caldera. Most of the activity occurred during the Pleistocene when a series of large Plinian eruptions accompanied growth of a second cone.
