Shikaribetsu, seen here from the SE, consists of a group of lava domes W and S of Lake Shikaribetsu. The youngest domes were constructed along an ENE-WSW trend S of the lake. The largest dome, Higashi-Nupukaushi (left), was built at the SW end of a horseshoe-shaped crater, of which the NE rim forms the small peak right of the summit. Two or more large debris avalanche deposits extend to the S. Photo by Hiromitsu Yamagishi (Geological Survey of Hokkaido).
