Nishiyama volcano, seen here from the older Higashiyama, forms the NW part of Hachijojima island. The island's airport and its largest town occupy the flanks. The small volcanic island of Kojima (upper left) lies several kilometers to the west. Major activity from the early Holocene until about 4,000 years ago was restricted to flank eruptions.
