Details for: Yakedake
Yake-dake, whose name means "Burning Mountain," rises above the popular resort of Kamikochi in the Northern Japan Alps. It is seen here from Taisho-ike pond to its ENE. The small andesitic stratovolcano contains a 300-m-wide crater at its summit, and explosion craters are found on the SE and northern flanks. Frequent small-to-moderate phreatic eruptions have occurred during the 20th century from both summit and flank vents. An eruption in 1915 produced a mudflow that created Taisho-ike pond and killed the trees in the foreground. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1977 (Smithsonian Institution).
