Rausu volcano (羅臼岳 Rausu-dake) is an active stratovolcano on the Shiretoko Peninsula of NE Hokkaido. It is located on a ridge 5 km SW of Shiretoko-Iwo-san volcano, the NE-most active volcano in Hokkaido.
Rausu's summit contains lava domes. Young lava flows are visible on the NW and SE flanks of the volcano.
There is no known historic eruption, but field evidence shows that the last eruption took place between 1750 and 1850 AD.
