Sakurajima Volcano

Most Recent Major Eruption

The eruption was initially very explosive. After a large earthquake, the volcano settled down but began to spew out very large lava flows.

The lava flows connected Sakura Island to the Oosumi Peninsula.

Sakurajima has become active ever since the 1914 eruption.

Sakurajima rests on a plate boundary between the Philippine Plate (which is being subducted) and the Eurasian Plate.

The city was evacuated prior due to seismic activity. A recorded number of 35 people died.
