Details for: Nikko-Shiranesan
Nikko-Shirane is a relatively small volcano consisting of a group of four lava domes resting on a shield volcano in Nikko National Park. The summit lava dome, cut by an E-W-trending fissure, is seen here from Mae-Shirane, east of the summit. Goshiki-numa forms the depression between Shirane and Mae-Shirane. All historical eruptions, from the 17th-19th centuries, have consisted of phreatic explosions from Shirane-san, the youngest lava dome. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1964 (Smithsonian Institution).
