An aerial view from the NE shows the three summit cones of Sakura-jima. Kita-dake, the northern cone, is at the right, Naka-dake in the center, and a plume of ash and steam rises from Minami-dake, the historically active southern crater. The city of Kagoshima appears at the upper right across Kagoshima Bay.
