Details for: Taisetsuzan
A solfatara field and recent explosion craters occupy the western slope of Asahi-dake, one of the Daisetsu group volcanoes in central Hokkaido. Daisetsu (also known as Taisetsu) is a complex group of stratovolcanoes and lava domes associated with a small, 2-km-wide caldera. Asahi-dake, the highest peak of the complex, was constructed 3 km SW of the center of the caldera. In contrast to the neighboring Tokachi volcano group, no historical eruptions are known from Daisetsu. Photo by Ichio Moriya, 1993 (Kanazawa University).
