Oakandake, the prominent peak to the right, is the largest of a group of cones constructed within the 13 x 24 km Akan caldera. It is seen here from the E with the Meakan volcano group that occupies the opposite SW side of the caldera, on the distant left horizon. Akan Caldera is the southernmost of a group of three large calderas in NE Hokkaido. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1977 (Smithsonian Institution).
