Japan - Bandai-san volcano

Lantern slide of 'In the Crater of Bandai-San'. Bandai-san is a volcano in the central area of Fukushima Prefecture, southern Tohoku. The 1888 eruption led to the large collapse of the northern part of volcanic body. This eruption is well-known because there were records of the course of eruption and detailed post-eruption surveys, often introduced in some volcanological books outside Japan. The large collapse largely changed the landforms of and around Bandai-san and formed many lakes and swamps. At present, the devastated area became luxuriant forests with a diversity of living things and a famous tourist resort due to the beautiful landscapes and impressive colored lakes and swamps including the Goshikinuma lakes.
