Adatara volcano is a group of overlapping stratovolcanoes east of Bandai volcano and located 15 km SW of Fukushima City. Its highest summit is Minowa-yama stratovolcano, north of Tetsu-zan, which is the currently active stratovolcano. The group forms a N-S directed elongated chain.
The volcano is known for its hot springs and fumaroles. Io-gawa river ("Sulfur River") exits the complex to the west.
72 workers of a sulfur mine in the summit crater were killed during an eruption in 1900. Historical eruptions were all from within the 1.2-km-wide, 350-m-deep Numonotaira crater of Tetsu-zan.

Sfondo

The broad forested massif of Adatara volcano is mainly andesitic and consists of stratovolcanoes and lava domes built upon Tertiary sedimentary rocks on the south and rest on the flank of Azuma volcano on the north.
Adatara was constructed in 3 main stages that began about 550,000, 350,000, and 200,000 years ago. In the first stage, lava flows and pyroclastic flows formed the Maegatake cone. The second stage built the Osyozan cone. The 3rd stage erupted large amounts of lava flows, pyroclastic flows and andesitic lava domes and built the present-day chain of volcanoes.
