Sakurajima intensified on April 28, when he threw a column of smoke by about 3.8 thousand meters. This volcano is considered one of the most dangerous in Japan, its eruptions occur regularly, which causes a lot of trouble to the nearby large city of Kagoshima.
In Japan there are about 110 active volcanoes. Only in October of last year the country experienced a powerful eruption of the Aso volcano, which is also located on the island of Kyushu.
