Takahara is a small stratovolcano located SW of Nasu volcano and NNW of Utsunomiya city in central Honshu.
The basaltic-to-dacitic volcano is constructed within the Shiobara caldera. It contains a number of small lava domes, including the symmetrical Fuji-san, one of many conical volcanic mountains named after Japan's renowned Mount Fuji.
Fuji-san is the youngest known volcanic feature of Takahara volcano and was formed about 6,500 years ago.
