This was without a doubt one of the coolest days we have ever had in Japan, hands down. We saw a freaking volcano erupt! Sakurajima is almost a mystical place, an active volcano centred in a bay that the entire prefecture of Kagoshima wraps around. The island is far from modern Japan, but just a quick ferry ride from Kagoshima City, so if you ever make it down there don't miss a day on Sakurajima itself. It's one of our favorite places on the planet.

The power of the earth is astounding. Two meters of this tori are burried in ash.

He's back!

Oh my god, the mountain is exploding.

...take a selfie...I guess?

It's hard to take your eyes off it.

Cooling down.

It's more stable than you'd assume!



Let's go!

Kyde made it too!

Prehistoric camel dude.



Must have been a hell of a show.
