The Kita-Yatsugatake (North Yatsuga-take) volcanic group is seen here from the summit of Tengudake to the south. Conical Tateshina (left-center) is a part of a group cones and lava domes at the NW end of the NNW-SSE-trending Yatsugatake volcanic massif. The broad forested slope in the foreground is Nakadake, and the flat-topped peak to the right of Tateshina is Yokodake, which last erupted about 800 years ago.
