Information regarding Mt. Kirishima (Mt. Iwoyama), as of February 20, 2018

Volcanic activity is increasing at Mt. Iwoyama in the Mt. Kirishima area, and due to the potential for a small scale eruption the Volcano Alert Level has been raised from Level 1 (warning, active volcano), to Level 2 (crater area restriction).

Currently there are no restrictions on trails on the Kagoshima Prefecture side of the mountain, and tourism facilities are in operation as usual, so please continue to check this site for up to date information and enjoy sightseeing in Kagoshima Prefecture.

 We are looking forward to your visit.
