Mount Aso Spilling Ashes

Mount Aso spilling ashes from far

The University of Manchester recently released a list of the world's 10 most dangerous volcanoes. While going through the list, I noticed Mount Aso in Japan was ranked 4th. This reminded me of my visit in December 2014, where I witnessed Mount Aso spilling ashes and my bus had to be diverted. The photo in this post was taken from my bus while it was being diverted. I thought it would be interesting to share my experience and my apologies for the reflection from the bus windows.
