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.
