Akita-Yakeyama, seen here from the E, is one of several Japanese volcanoes named Yakeyama ("Burning Mountain"). Yakeyama contains a lava dome in its 600-m-wide summit crater. The flat-topped Kuroshimori lava dome is visible to the left. Several thermal areas are located at the western base of the volcano.
