Details for: Tomariyama [Golovnin]
An explosion crater on the floor of Golovnin caldera contains sulfur-encrusted fumarolic areas along the lake shore and beneath the lake, giving rise to its name, Kipyashchoe (Boiling Lake). Golovnin volcano, the southernmost in the Kuril Islands, forms the southern end of Kunashir Island, across the Nemuro Strait from Hokkaido. The gently sloping stratovolcano is truncated by a 4-5 km wide caldera with several lava domes on its floor. The only known historical eruption of Golovnin was an explosion in 1848.
