The JMA has raised the alert level on three for Hakoneyama, on 30 June at 12:30 JST, with restriction of the approach area.
After an intensification in late April, the area had shown signs of easing justifying a level 2. The increase of the level follows a 3.3 M earthquake Tuesday at 6:56, and the fear of cinder fall in a presumed radius 700 meters around an area where a new crater is formed.
On Monday, a swarm of volcanic earthquakes (140 in 20 h) occurred in relation to magmatic movements or hydrothermal system disturbances.
Ash falls have been confirmed in the vicinity of the cable car station Owakudani

The Gunung Colo, which forms the small island of Una Una in the middle of the Gulf of Tomini in North Sulawesi, saw its alert level rose to II / Waspada by the VSI on June 24.
It is the only Indonesian volcano to possess a geyser in its wide caldera 2,000 meters wide. Only three eruptions have been recorded during the historical period, but two of them have caused considerable damage to Una Una. The latest, in 1983, produced pyroclastic flows that covered much of the little island after the evacuation of all residents.
