Meakan volcano (left center) rises above Lake Akan to its NE. Along with Fuppushi volcano (right), it is part of a cluster of 9 volcanoes that occupy the SW side of the 13 x 24 km Akan Caldera. The summit of Meakan contains the active Ponmachineshiri and Nakamachineshiri craters, which have been the sites of frequent phreatic eruptions in historical time.
