We investigate the electromagnetic transition form factors of the baryon decuplet to the baryon octet, based on the self-consistent SU(3) chiral quark-soliton model, taking into account the effects of explicit breaking of flavor SU(3) symmetry. We emphasize the $$Q^2$$ dependence of the electromagnetic $$N\rightarrow \Delta $$ transition form factors and the ratios of E2/M1 and C2/M1 in comparison with the experimental and empirical data. In order to compare the present results of the electromagnetic transition form factors of the $$N\rightarrow \Delta $$ with those from lattice QCD, we evaluate the form factors with the pion mass deviated from its physical value. The results of the E2/M1 and C2/M1 ratios are in good agreement with the lattice data. We also present the results of the electromagnetic transition form factors for the decuplet to the octet transitions.
