Nishi-mine, the western peak of Yokoate-jima, is seen from the NW with a road visible at the left that reaches the summit crater. Yokoate-jima is a small, 3.5-km-long, dumbbell-shaped island at the SW end of the Tokara island chain. Two peaks, Higashi-mine on the east and Nishi-mine on the west, form the andesitic island. Yokoate-jima is a post-caldera cone of a 7 x 10 km wide submarine caldera. Historical documents at the end of the Edo Period mention ash plumes from Yokoate-jima.
