Details for: Washiba-Kumonotaira
Washiba-ike crater lies in the foreground with the dramatic granitic peaks of the Yari-Hodaka Range in the background to the south. The sharp-topped peak on the center horizon is Yariga-take (Spear Peak), a popular climbing destination in the Northern Japan Alps. The Washiba-Kumonotaira volcano group consists of a cluster of small shield volcanoes with possible lava domes in a remote area in the heart of the Northern Alps. A tephra layer from the Washiba-ike explosion crater overlies the 6300-year-old Akahoya Ash from Kikai volcano.
