Details for: Niigata-Yakeyama
Niigata-Yake-yama, the flat-topped peak in the center of the photo, is one of several Japanese volcanoes named Yake-yama ("Burning Mountain"). The andesitic lava dome, seen here from the north, is located in Niigata Prefecture, near the Japan Sea. Yake-yama is a very young volcano that was constructed beginning only 3000-3500 years ago. Several explosion craters and fissures, which were formed during historical eruptions that date back to the 9th century, cut the summit and flanks of the dome.
