Steep cliffs up to 300-m-high surround the small island of Toshima. Toshimamura, the port village of the island, is to the far left in this view from the west. Toshima lies about 20 km W of the main volcanic front of the Izu-Marianas arc. Recent activity occurred between about 8,000 and 40,00 years ago.
