Background:

A basaltic scoria cone lies along the W coast of the northern peninsula of Nakadori-jima of the Goto Islands off the western coast of Kyushu (Nakano et al., 2001-). It is described in the GSJ database (2015) as an isolated monogenetic volcano distinct from the Ojikajima volcano group to the N, with the most recent activity in the middle Pleistocene (0.19 Ma). It is designated as a natural monument, Sone volcano "red fired cliff" after the a cliff face along the bay to the SW from the summit. The villages of Sonego and Sone lie on the NW flank of the cone.
