Shiga volcano is a group of small andesitic shield volcanoes and pyroclastic cones immediately north of Kusatsu-Shirane volcano.
The last eruptions were about 250,000 and 10,000 years ago. The complex was built on top of a large lava plateau that was erupted between about 300,000 to 200,000 years ago.
