Kita-Ioto is seen here from a ship west of the island. Eruptions have been recorded since the 18th century from Funka-Asane, a submarine vent about 2 km NW of the island. Kita-Iwojima ("North Sulfur Island") is the northernmost of the Kazan Retto (Volcano Islands), located in the middle of the Izu-Marianas arc.
