One person was killed and at least 11 other people injured after a volcano erupted near a ski resort in Kusatsu, about 140 kilometers northwest of Tokyo, on January 23. The eruption of Kusatsu-Shirane was followed by an avalanche that trapped about a dozen skiers, including six members of Japan’s Ground Self Defense Force who were training in the area, one of whom later died from his injuries, Reuters reported. This video was taken by a skier in Kusatsu, and shows his view of the sky filling with smoke from a ski-lift. Credit: Ibuka Fujii (藤井伊吹) via Storyful
