Yakushidake (right) forms the summit of Iwatesan volcano, and is a younger cone that was constructed over the eastern rim of NishiIwate caldera, the left-hand peak in this view from the SE. Eruptions, mostly from the 500-m-wide summit crater and flank vents, have been recorded since the 17th century. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1977 (Smithsonian Institution).
