From afar, Onidake (literally, “ogre hill”) rises almost comically from the landscape, a craggy goitre carpeted in a lush green lawn. It has become a symbol of the vaguely Hebridean islands of the Goto archipelago. Mount Onidake’s odd position, almost alone on the eastern plains of Fukue Island, cut off from the mountains that make up the spine of the island, and peculiar domed shape hint at the true nature of the hill: it’s a volcano, dormant for millennia.
