Geothermal activity and recent craters occupy the western slope of Asahidake, one of the Daisetsu group volcanoes in central Hokkaido. Taisetsuzan is a complex group of cones and lava domes associated with a 2-km-wide caldera. Asahidake, the highest peak of the complex, was constructed 3 km SW from the caldera center.
