Sakurajima island in Kagoshima city

Sakurajima is active vulcano island close to Kagoshima city. Seeing Sakurajima was main reason why I came to this city. During first day Sakurajima vulcano was silent, but during second day it send some brown light clouds into the sky.

In video, I am taking ferry from Kagoshima to Sakurajima. On last weekend of July, Fire island festival is celebrated with fireworks. Fireworks tries to resemble past Sakurajima eruptions.
