    Apparently folks can tour the crater - when it is not erupting.

    Hi Greg,

    had to look to see where in Japan it was ... middle of Kyushu :smile:
    No nothing here and the USGS network hasn't picked up anything significant either

    So the mid-eruption sightseeing atop the peak is out then?

    "Even when the area around the summit is open, gases can be intense, and people with respiratory problems should refrain from approaching the crater."

    Let's hope it's just rolling over before going back to sleep...
