Volcano Calendar 2018: We're proud to present our 2018 volcano calendar: 13 different and attractive images of volcanoes, volcanic landscapes and phenomena taken during volcano tours over the past few years.
The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
Azuma volcano is a group of small stratovolcanoes, shield volcanoes, domes and cinder cones in NE Honshu, Japan, west of Fukushima city.
Historical eruptions were mostly small phreatic eruptions from the Issaikyo volcano at the northern end of the Higashi-Azuma volcanic complex.
The beautiful symmetrical Azuma-Kofuji crater and a nearby fumarolic area at southeast slope containing the 200 m wide Oana crater are the most prominent features of Issaikyo volcano and along with Goshiki-numa and Oke-numa crater lakes popular tourist destinations.
Oana crater has produced several phreataic eruptions in recent decades and contains very powerful fumaroles, producing plumes rising several hundred meters high.

Intraplate volcanism: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
Stromboli volcano photos: The lighthouse of the Thyrrhenian Sea - thanks to its typical, regular explosions that coined the term "strombolian activity", Stromboli is one of the most famous and photogenic volcanoes in the world.
