Kuntomintar is a Pleistocene andesitic stratovolcano on the southern end of Shiashkotan Island in the central Kuriles. It contains a central cone inside a 4-4.5 km wide caldera. There are no recent eruption, but there is fumarolic activity near the east wall of the caldera and a hot spring.
A second caldera is present on the west side and breached to the west. A report of an eruption in 1872 that destroyed an Ainu village was actually from Sinarka volcano.
