Yake-dake volcano is a small dominantly andesitic stratovolcano near the popular resort of Kamikochi in the Northern Japan Alps. It is one of several Japanese volcanoes named Yake-dake or Yake-yama ("Burning Peak" or "Burning Mountain").
It has had frequent small to moderate phreatic eruptions in the 20th century. A small hydrothermal explosion in a hydrothermal area killed 2 persons on 11 Feb 1995 at a highway construction site.

Background:

Yake-dake was constructed on a N-S-trending ridge between the older volcanoes of Warudani-yama and Shiratani-yama. Akandana-yama, about 4 km SSW of Yake-dake, is a stratovolcano with lava domes that was active into the Holocene. A 300-m-wide crater is located the summit of Yake-dake, and explosion craters are found on the SE and northern flanks.
