Takachihomine peak (center) in the Kirishima volcanic complex is flanked on the E (right) by Ohachi, with its broad summit crater. Madudake cone is to the far right. Kirishima is a large group of more than 20 Quaternary cones within Kirishima National Park, located N of Kagoshima Bay. The late-Pleistocene to Holocene group of cones, maars, and underlying shield volcanoes occupies an area of 20 x 30 km. Photo by Ichio Moriya (Kanazawa University).
