Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Mount Asama is an active complex volcano in central Honshu, the main island of Japan. The volcano is the most active on Honshu. The Japan Meteorological Agency classifies Mount Asama as rank A. It stands 2,568 metres above sea level on the border of Gunma and Nagano prefectures. It is one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan. Mount Asama sits at the conjunction of the Izu-Bonin-Mariana Arc and the Northeastern Japan Arc. The mountain is built up from non-alkali mafic and pyroclastic volcanic rocks dating from the Late Pleistocene to the Holocene. The main rock type is andesite and dacite. Scientists from Tokyo University and Nagoya University completed their first successful imaging experiment of the interior of the volcano in April 2007. By detecting sub-atomic particles called muons as they passed through the volcano after arriving from space, the scientists were able gradually to build up a picture of the interior, creating images of cavities through which lava was passing deep inside the volcano.
