A 130-m-high lava dome was emplaced at the summit of Tarumai volcano on Hokkaido in 1909. The dome grew rapidly near the end of an explosive eruption that began on January 1. An eruption in 1917 produced the fissure that cuts diagonally across the dome. Subsequent eruptions have occurred along this fissure and at other locations on the summit and flanks of the dome.
