I am updating the previous posts on the events rather than starting new posts continuously. Unfortunately it's not easy to control the layout of pictures in this blog site. It's "cool" that I can update the posts, but 'not so cool' that these updates don't get widely distributed.
I haven't had time to update my "volcanoes" posts, but here's a brief note:
Note: Shinmoedake volcano, which became active this year after a 50 year repose is not on Honshu, but is on Kyushu, south of Honshu. It is part of the Kirishima cluster (Kirishima is shown on the map).

Shinmoedake volcano, the James Bond volcano,
became active again. See here and here for
previous posts on it.

|Nuclear reactors in Japan. The ones that appear in the|
press are Fukushima Daini, fukushima Daiichi, and Onagawa
From here, a site with a number of interesting maps of Japan.
