A spectacular eruption started at Kirishima volcano on 26 January 2011. Violent explosions emit dense ash plumes and weak incandescent lava fountains. Small pyroclastic flows are devastating the lower slopes of the volcano, and many ballistic blocks impact in the vicinity of the crater.
The ash plume is about 1.5 km high according to Japanese news, and the Tokyo VAAC issued an ash warning for Kirishima to elevations up to ~7.6 km / 25,000 feet.
It appears the latest eruption comes from Shinmoe-dake vent of Kirishima volcano, whose last eruption started in 2008.
