A series of craters, some filled by lakes, dot the undulating summit plateau of Hachimantai. It was constructed from dispersed vents during the Pleistocene and is capped with andesitic lavas from the center of the complex. Circular craters are located near Komonomore and Mokkodake in the center of the plateau.  Photo by Ichio Moriya (Kanazawa University).
