The Tengu-Hirayama volcano group consists of the andesitic-to-dacitic Tengu and Hira-yama volcanoes. They were active about 1.3-1.0 million years ago (Nakano et al., 2001-). Ariake-yama and Hirami-yama form the high points of Tengu and Hira-yama volcanoes, respectively. The northern part of this area contains the 1.6-1.3 million year Kitamitoge volcanic rocks.
