Kuttara volcano is a group of small stratovolcanoes, lava domes, pyroclastic cones and a caldera near the Pacific coast SE of Toya caldera and SW of Shikotsu caldera in southern Hokkaido, Japan.
The area is known for some spectacular volcanic scenery:

Jigokudani or "Hell Valley", is a large 450 m diameter crater that formed about 200,000 years ago. It is surrounded by cliffs of red scoria and contains 11 hot springs, vigorous hot steam vents and fumaroles, giving it its name.
