Details for: Fukue
Sparsely vegetated On-dake cinder cone rises to the NW above Shiozura Bay. The 317-m-high cinder cone is the highest of a group of small basaltic shield volcanoes and cinder cones on the eastern side of Fukue Island, off the western coast of Kyushu. Activity at the Fukue volcano group began about 900,000 years ago, and the latest activity took place about 2000-3000 years ago.
