One of Japan’s most active 火山 (volcanoes), 桜島 (Sakurajima) has been erupting for the past few days.

    This reminds me of the movie we saw titled “I Wish.” I don’t know what the Japanese title was originally. It showed how there was always ashes from the volcano messing up the homes and streets.

      I think you mean 「奇跡」(kiseki)… it means “Miracle”.

      I haven’t watched it but I remember seeing the previews for it on TV a couple years ago … it’s about divorce, isn’t it?
      Is there a volcano eruption in that movie too?

        I’ve been through enough natural disasters (no volcano eruptions)… thankfully without injury to my family.

        I hope to never be in any more!

      It shot rock and lava pretty far … but, thankfully, no injuries so far.

    Awesome picture! I love volcanoes, so long as no one is injured.

      Well, Japan has many.

      Most of them are dormant … 富士山 (Mt. Fuji) is, of course, the most famous.

      But if you like active volcanoes, you’d like 桜島 (Sakurajima).

      I’m just glad there are no volcanoes near Tokyo!
