Maruyama cone is the low-angle peak at the left and Odokoyama on the right in this offshore view of Oki-Dogo Island. The Oki-Dogo Islands, north of the SW Honshu city of Matsue, are largely Pleistocene in age. The Daimanjisan lava flow on Oki-Dogo overlies alluvial gravel containing an ancient water jar, and the name Takuhiyama ("Burning Mountain") may reflect an oral record of an eruption.
