Hodakadake, the highest of a rugged group of peaks in the scenic Northern Alps National Park, lies within the Hodaka Graben, the source of two major explosive eruptions about 1.75 million years ago. The eruption of the caldera-forming Nyukawa Pyroclastic Flow Deposit about 1.76 million years ago (Kimura and Nagahashi, 2007) was followed by the Ebisutoge-Fukuda Tephra, with an estimated volume of 380-490 km3 (Kataoka et al., 2001).
