Hakone volcano news & activity updates:

Hakone volcano (Honshu, Japan): increased seismicity and deformation worries scientists about possible new eruptions

Friday Mar 01, 2013 16:38 PM | BY: T

The latest bulletin of the Japan Meteorological Agency mentions that an increase in seismicity since January 11 near the intra-caldera dome Komagatake is beginning to worry scientists about a possible new activity.
This increased seismicity is accompanied by deformation (inflation) detected since the end of 2012. No tremor has been recorded at the moment.
The geothermal activity of Hakone is a popular tourist destination and several small towns lie in the immediate vicinity of the volcano, which is itself within 80 km from downtown Tokyo.
The alert level is, for the moment, kept at 1. Source: JMA / Activolcans.
