This post will be dated eventually, but at least right this minute, I can see ash erupting heavily out of the summit of Sakurajima on the live webcam: link here, in English, more languages available with clicky things at top right.

Sakurajima is a composite volcano, and used to form an island in a caldera, but in the past century, eruptive growth has joined it to the mainland.
