October 7, 2019 Eruption warning level lowered to 1 (note that it is an active volcano)

[Kanagawa Prefectural Onsen Geological Research Institute]

Volcanic activity around Owakudani (Mt. Hakone)

The Japan Meteorological Agency has announced eruption alert level 1 (note that it is an active volcano).

Since mid-March of this year (2019), crustal movements showing active seismic activity and mountain expansion have been observed at Hakone, and eruption alert level 2 was announced on May 19. Since then, volcanic activity has declined, and the frequency of earthquakes has recently become pre-active, and changes in crustal deformation that indicate mountain expansion have been stagnant. However, active fumarolic activity continues in the assumed crater area around Owakudani, and caution is required. The Onsen Geological Research Institute will continue to observe carefully in the future.
