Sakurajima Volcano

From the series “Volcanoes and Traps That Changed the Face of the Planet”
One of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world is in Japan. Sakurajima volcano is constantly active since 1955. Researchers believe that its eruption may be the most extensive in the history. This disaster can begin at any time. One of the last eruptions happened in 2009. The volcano is located in the immediate vicinity of the city of Kagoshima, so its residents live in a permanent alert.

Literally, every day locals prepare themselves for disaster. There are many underground shelters built in the city. Exercises, which involve both adults and children, are regular here. Instant-acting web cameras have been installed over the volcano to track its activity in real time. The largest eruption of Sakurajima volcano happened in 1924. A huge amount of lava was thrown through the vent. It went … Read all

From the series “Most Fabulous and Magic Beaches”

In 1950, the building was badly damaged by a fire. … Read more

Hiroshima
The reminder of the tragic events taking place in August 1945 is the Genbaku Dome. This is a historical construction crowned with a big globe dome.

In the first half of the 20th century, it was … Read more
