Recently, the Japanese agency which monitors Sakurajima Volcano in Japan, issued an elevated alert for the area around the volcano -- the threat of a large scale eruption (with damaging pyroclastic flow / ash fall). Eruptions occur daily at this location -- this is a rather large eruption of ash from the main caldera. Recent activity at the volcano has caused a NEW vent to steam behind the main caldera which erupts in this video. Mirrored with permission from: www.youtube.com
