Image Caption:
Kussharo Caldera

These two near-vertical views show a string of volcanoes in the
northeastern portion of Hokkaido Island, including the large lake
filled Kussharo Caldera (1). Numerous other volcanic features
are highlighted by snowfall including calderas (2) and Mount
Shart Volcano (3). Volcanic ash flow (4) extend from the
Kussharo Caldera towards the coast. Many canyons are eroded into
the relatively soft ash flows. The active volcano Mount Akan is
located south of the Kussharo Caldera (toward the bottom center
of the lower photograph) but is not visible due to cloud cover.
