TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Kita-Fukutokutai is a newly recognized active submarine volcano halfway between Iwo-jima and Minami-Iwo-jima islands, ca. 1300 km south of Tokyo.

Background:

The volcano rises to 73 m below the sea surface. Water discoloration was reported several times beginning in 1937, and floating pumice was seen in 1953-54. In 1988 a fishing boat reported an eruption column about 100 m high, although the report was not confirmed at the time. The Japan Meteorological Agency, which has responsibility for the oversight of Japanese volcanoes, has classified Kita-Fukutokutai as an active volcano.
