Captured on the University of Tokyo webcams located around the volcano, this blast sent ash multiple kilometers (several miles) into the sky, and caused large pyroclastic flows to descend down the mountainside of the volcano.

Approximately 2 weeks ago, just before the large M7.0 earthquake in Kyushu Japan, this volcano went silent. Normally this volcano (in the past) shows small daily eruptions.
