The Kannabe volcano group is the westernmost and youngest of a cluster of monogenetic volcanoes that are part of the Kita-Tajima volcano group in Hyogo Prefecture, along with Mesaka, Kamisano, and Gembudo volcanoes. A radiocarbon age of 19,000 years before present was obtained from the small shield volcano of Kannabe-yama (Ono et al., 1981), and Nakano et al (2001-) listed an age of 20,000 or 10,000 years. Mesaka volcano was dated at 130,000 years, Kamisano volcano at 230,000 years, and Gembudo (Genbudo) at about 1.6 million years (Nakano et al., 2001-). Other more isolated volcanoes of the Kita-Tajima volcano group, such as the Ogino-Sen and Mikata volcano groups and Takara-yama, are listed separately in this compilation.
