The 14 x 12 km Shikotsu caldera is shown in this September 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 28 km across). Tarumae is the cone on the SE rim of the caldera with a roughly 1.5-km-wide crater containing a lava dome. Between Tarumae and the caldera lake is the eroded Fuppushi cone. On the opposite (NW) side of the caldera is the Eniwa cone. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2019.
