Washibaike crater lies in the foreground with the granitic peaks of the Yari-Hodaka Range in the background to the S with Yarigatake (Spear Peak) in the center. The Washiba-Kumonotaira volcano group consists of a cluster of small shield volcanoes with possible lava domes. A tephra layer from Washibaike crater overlies the 6,300-year-old Akahoya Ash from Kikai volcano.
