A small eruption marked the Nakadake crater of Aso volcano, on the island of Kyushu in the Nippon archipelago, this August 8, 2015 around 12:15 pm, accompanied by an ash plume rising to 600 meters. No injuries were reported.
The activity seems more phreatic, with phases of "jet-like venting" of ash, that typically strombolian.
The JMA maintains the alert level on 2 on a scale of 5, with a forbidden one kilometer zone around the crater.
