Japan volcano Shinmoedake erupted for the first time since April 2018 releasing a large cloud of ash and debris high into the air.

Footage reportedly captured a few kilometres away from Shinmoedake shows billowing smoke rising high above the mount.

The video also appears to have recorded a rumbling sound resembling the aftermath of an explosion as the ash cloud is released.

Shinmoedake, which was made famous to the British public thanks to the 1967 James Bond film ‘You Only Live Twice’, is located 935km from Japan’s capital Tokyo.

n the Bond classing, the volcano’s crater acted at the lair of villain Ernst Blofeld and the base from which he launches his personal shuttle to snatch US and Soviet shuttles.

Shinmoedake’s eruption today marks the fourth time the volcano has erupted in 2018.

Japan has 110 active volcanoes and monitors 47 constantly as the country is located on the infamous Ring of Fire – a large area in the Pacific Ocean subjected to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

The fearsome volcano is part of the Mount Shinmoedake cluster of volcanoes in Kagoshima prefecture on Japan’s southwestern-most island of Kyushu.

The volcano’s eruptions have been tracked as far back as 1716 and the volcano is believed to have been formed as long as 25,000 years ago.
