The Chirippusan Peninsula protrudes NW into the Sea of Okhotsk from central Iturup Island and is composed of two Holocene cones. Minamichirippusan (center) lies at the southern end of the peninsula and Chirippusan (in the background to the left) forms the northern end. Lava flows from Minamichirippusan reach the coast on both the E and W sides of the peninsula.
