Kakuto is a large figure-eight shaped caldera north of Kirishima that consists of the overlapping Kakuto and Kobayashi calderas, formed about 0.4-0.5 and 0.3 Ma, respectively (Nakano et al., 2001-). Major explosive eruptions have occurred around 110,000, 65,000 and 12,000 years ago (Newhall and Dzurisin, 1988).
