Taradake is a stratovolcano and lava dome NW of Unzen volcano that was active mostly between 1.3 and 0.4 million years ago (Nakano et al., 2001). Mainly basalt was erupted from about 4.6 to 1 Ma. At this point, a stratovolcano formed, erupting calc-alkaline andesites and dacites. Basaltic volcanism resumed at around 0.8 Ma, and from 0.6 to 0.4 Ma was mostly andesitic lavas (Higo and Mashima, 2004).
