Shikaribetsu volcano (然別火山群 Shikaribetsu-kazangun) is a group of lava domes west and south of Lake Shikaribetsu in central Hokkaido. They are part of the Daisetsuzan National Park. The volcanic group includes the peaks of Mount Ishikari (highest), Mount Yuniishikari, Mount Otofuke and Mount Higashinupukaushi.
The Shikaribetsu lava domes are andesitic-to-dacitic and constructed along a ENE-WSW line. The largest dome is Higashi-Nupukaushinupuri at the SW end. It has a breached crater and was the source of 2 or more large debris-avalanches with deposits extending to the south.
