Details for: Sanbesan
The summit of Sanbe volcano in SW Honshu, the SW-most Holocene volcano on the island of Honshu, is cut by a caldera. Seen here from the south, the highest peak is called O-Sanbe (Male-Sanbe or Father-Sanbe). It is flanked by Me-Sanbe (Female-Sanbe) on the right, Ko-Sanbe (son) on the left, and Mago-Sanbe (grandson) in the center. Sanbe (also known as Sambe) had a large explosive eruption about 3700 years ago that originated form Taihei-zan lava dome (the lighter-colored area on the west side of the caldera).
