Professor Kenji Nogami of the Tokyo Institute of Technology confirmed the resumption of the activity after examining the images taken by the Coast Guard: "... because the lava leaves vigorously from the crater, it seems that a large quantity of magma fed from below, and if the eruption continues, the lava can reach the coast and cover part of the island ... "
Volcanologist Setsuya Nakada of the University of Tokyo added that "the level of volcanic activity of Nishinoshima is practically the same as that observed in 2014 when the volcano was active."
