Kutcharo (also spelled Kussharo or Kuccharo) volcano is a large caldera 26 x 20 km in diameter in NE Hokkaido, Japan, and contains Atosanupuri (アトサヌプリ) volcano. The caldera formed during a series of major explosive eruptions between 340,000 and 30,000 years ago. The crescent-shaped Lake Kutcharo (Kutcharo-ko) covers most of the western half of the caldera. There are no known historic eruptions, but the volcano has been frequently active in the past 10,000 years and constructed several lava domes and the Atosanupuri stratovolcano near the center of the caldera. Naka-jima is a less-than-10,000 years old dacitic-to-rhyolitic lava-dome forming an island in the lake. Intense fumarolic activity occurs on and around Atosanupuri volcano and along the shores of Lake Kutcharo (Kutcharo-ko).
Volcanic crisis at Sakurajima - updates: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
