Photographer's Note

Another little look back at my honeymoon trip to Japan in 2019.

I've never been the mass tourist type, trying instead to find my own way around and keeping off the beaten path. But for this day my wife and I did the unthinkable... we boarded at guided tourist bus... *shudder*

This is from a round trip around the island of Sakurajima and the very active volcano that goes by the same name. With the active area of the volcano being Minamidake, or the Southern Peak.
Though it may not be the closest point you get to the ative crater itself, the view of the actual crater is much apparent.
The interesting thing about Sakurajima is the name itself: -jima (or -shima, depending on your reading of the kanji) meaning "Island".
Sakurajima itself is much more a peninsula, but that was not before the massive eruption of 1914, an eruption with lava flow that lasted for months and eventually connected the island to the mainland of Kyushu.
