A volcano in Sakurajima in southern Japan has erupted, spewing volcanic ash onto Kagoshima City.
The eruption at one of Japan's most active volcanoes caused ash to cover roads. Residents of Kagoshima donned face masks to protect themselves while sweeping away the ash.
The volcano has erupted over 600 times this year and is expected to continue its intermittent eruptions.
Currently, the volcano warning there is at level three out of a possible five levels.
A level five would mean that the residents living near the crater would have to be evacuated, while level three warns people not to approach the volcano.
