Volcano adds island to Japan

ADVERTISEMENT

A volcano off the coast of Japan erupted in late November and created a new island for Japan about 600 miles (970km) south of Tokyo.



National Geographic described the island as about 660 feet in diameter. It sits off the coast of Nishinoshima, a small, uninhabited island in a group of about 30 islands known as the Bonin Islands, or the Ogasawara chain.



New islands have a tendency to disappear back below the waves, so Japanese officials were waiting before naming it.
