Details for: Yufu-Tsurumi
Yufu-dake, the westernmost of the two large lava dome complexes of Tsurumi volcano, rises to the NE of the city of Yufu in northern Kyushu. Three smaller lava domes are located on the north flank of the eastern dome, Tsurumi. Only a single eruption from Tsurumi volcano, in 867 CE, is known in historical time. The colorful hot spring pools and mudpots of Beppu, one of Japan's most noted thermal areas, are a major tourist attraction at the coastal city of Beppu, east of the volcano.
