Information concerning the eruption of Kirishima Mountain (Shinmoe-dake)

Kagoshima Prefectural Visitors Bureau

 

Shinmoe-dake, Kirishima Mountain, has been erupting continuously since January 26, 2011, and the volcanic activity has intensified. Because of this, an area of approximately 4 km around the Shinmoe-dake crater has been off-limits since February 1st, 11:50 am.

Accordingly, access to Shinmoe-dake, Naka-dake, Karakuni-dake, Shishiko-dake, Mount Ohata, Ohata Lake, Onami Lake, Mount Takachiho, and Ohachi has also been restricted.

  Hotels and Japanese-style inns in the Kirishima area outside of the restricted zone are all in business and operating as usual.

2            Concerning Kagoshima Airport

There has been no effect on take-off and landing procedures at Kagoshima Airport, which is 24 km southwest of Shinmoe-dake.

Kagoshima Airport is up-wind of the Kirishima Mountain Range (including Shinmoe-dake, etc.) year-round, and it is extremely unlikely that flights at the airport would be cancelled due to falling ash.
