The mountain consists of the West Iwate volcano, which has a major caldera at the top of the mountain, and the eastern Iwate volcano, which erupts to the east of its crater and has a summit at Yakushidake.
The east and west volcanoes exploded several more times, each having a dual volcano topography, with a beautiful footing except on the west side, also called southern Fuji.
The alpine flora is formed from the crater wall of Nishi-Iwate volcano to the foot of Higashi-Iwate volcano (the first crater field called Fudohira).
From this point on, the upper crater hill area is covered with volcanic sand and has a so-called alpine wilderness appearance, and only limited plants can be seen.
