Haku-San Volcano, Japan

Early November snowfall at Haku-san accentuates the volcano's name, which means "White Mountain".

Eruptions at multiple vents along a roughly N-S line give the complex stratovolcano an elongated profile; the volcano is viewed here from the west.

Holocene eruptions have consisted of phreatic or phreatomagmatic explosions from several summit craters.
