Sakura-jima

 

Sakura-jima in Kagoshima Prefecture is an active strato volcano with three peaks, 

Kita-dake, Naka-dake and still active Minami-dake.
Formerly an island, it became connected with the Osumi Peninsula in 1914 when

lava from its summit closed the channel between the two.

 

The huge eruption started again in 1955, followed by eruptions 10 to
500 times every year.

 

This area is famous for “Sakurajima Daikon” Japan’s largest 
radish weighing up to 30 kilograms.
