Sakurajima volcano, Japan: vulcanian explosions in July 2013 (photos)

During the 2013 IAVCEI conference held in Kagoshima, Kyushu, Japan, from 19-24 July, Tom had the opportunity to visit the volcano (mainly in the evenings) and take pictures of the elevated activity the volcano was in during this time.
Vulcanian-type explosions, sometimes powerful with ash plumes rising up to 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude occurred at exceptionally high rates of 5-10 per day, and during intervals, the volcano had often displayed (silent as well as loud) near-constant ash venting in combination sometimes with deep-seated strombolian activity.
