Details for: Moekeshiwan [Lvinaya Past]
The widely breached Lvinaya Past caldera is seen here from the west, with its NW rim at the right and the eastern rim on the left horizon. The dramatic 7 x 9 km Lvinaya Past (Lion's Jaw) caldera on southern Iturup Island formed about 9400 years ago during one of the largest Holocene eruptions of the Kuril Islands. The volcano derives its name from a rock resembling a sleeping lion (the small peak at the far left in front of the tip of the NE rim) that breaches the surface at the center of the 5-km-long submerged portion of the caldera rim.
