Details for: Kirishimayama
Sharp-peaked Takachiho-mine (center) is the 2nd highest peak of the Kirishima volcanic complex. It is flanked on the east (right) by Ohachi, with its broad summit crater. Madu-dake is the grass-covered cone at the far right. Kirishima is a large group of more than 20 Quaternary volcanoes that is the centerpiece of Kirishima National Park, located north of Kagoshima Bay. The late-Pleistocene to Holocene group of stratovolcanoes, pyroclastic cones, maars, and underlying shield volcanoes occupies an area of 20 x 30 km. Photo by Ichio Moriya (Kanazawa University).
