Mount Unzen

Mount Unzen (or Unzen-dake in Japanese) is the generic name for a volcanic group, consisting of more than 20 mountains. It stretches over three cities in Nagasaki Prefecture: Shimabara, Minami-shimabara, and Unzen.

The eruption from Mount Fugen (or Fugen-dake) started around 1990 and created current Mount Heisei-shinzan, the highest mountain in the prefecture.
