Learn about the volcanic activity of Omuroyama that created the foundation of Izu plateau

Omuroyama erupted approximately 4,000 years ago. Its inverted rice-bowl shape was created as a result of scoria (magma splashes) piling up around the crater.The land east of Omuroyama such as Izu Kogen and Jogasaki coast were created by the magma flows from the eruption of Omuroyama.
