Details for: Hachijojima
Conical Nishi-yama volcano, seen here from the older cone Higashi-yama, forms the NW part of elongated Hachijo-jima island. The island's airport and its largest town occupy the flanks of Nishi-yama. The small volcanic island of Ko-jima (upper left) lies several km to the west of Hachijo-jima. The latest major activity of Nishi-yama, from the early Holocene until about 4000 years ago, was restricted to flank eruptions. Photo by Ichio Moriya (Kanazawa University).
