The dune-like surface in the foreground consists of pyroclastic surge deposits from the 1929 eruption of Komagatake. This 1991 S-flank view shows Kengamine (center), the summit of Komagatake, which is the rim of a large horseshoe-shaped crater that formed when the summit collapsed to the east (right).
