Sakurajima volcano (Japan): no explosions since 26 Dec but ash venting

No significant discrete explosions have been reported since 26 Dec, which is one of the longest periods without vulcanian explosions in recent years.
The volcano, however, is still erupting. It produces low-level ash plumes, in an often near-continuous fashion. This could suggest that the conduit is currently relatively open and allows magma to rise and degas efficiently without building up large pressure, during deep-seated strombolian activity (webcam images show no or very little glowing material reaching the rim of Showa crater).
