Details for: Kuchinoerabujima
Kuchinoerabu volcano rises to the SE above the fishing village of Motomura. The active cone of Shin-dake is in the center, Sankakuten-yama at the left, and Furu-dake (Huru-dake), the 649 m high point of the island, at the right. Shin-dake was formed after the NW side of Furu-dake was breached by an explosion and has been the site of frequent explosive eruptions in historical time. Several villages on the 4 x 12 km island are located within a few kilometers of Shin-dake and have suffered damage from eruptions.
