Fukue-jima volcano is a group of basaltic shield volcanoes and cinder cones on Fukue island off the western coast of Kyushu, Japan.
The volcanoes are 900,000 years old and last erupted about 2-3000 years ago. They are considered to be active.
The On-dake cinder cone forms the highest point of the volcanic field, which forms peninsulas at the eastern and SE tips of Fukue Island as well as several smaller islands SE of Fukue.
