    Question: how typical is this kind of activity for this volcano? Seems to be doing considerably more than a few weeks ago when I was looking.

    and is Mount Fiji doing anything?

    Mt Fuji Volcano, Japan
    A large earthquake (mag 6.2) occurred under Mt Fuji Volcano, Japan on 15th March at 10:31 pm, local time. The epicentre was located 7 km SSW of the summit. The focus was shallow at 10 km. Mt Fuji last erupted in 1708 and is still considered an active volcano. A 2004 Japanese government simulation determined that in the worst-case scenario, a major eruption of Fuji would cause 2.5 trillion (yen) in economic damage. (from http://www.volcanolive.com/news.html)

    Also:

    Honshu, Japan

    35.35 N, 138.73 E
    summit elevation 3776 m
    Stratovolcano

    Mt Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. The mountain has a base diameter of 50 km. Fuji Volcano consists of three volcanoes: Komitake, Ko-Fuji (Older Fuji Volcano) and the present Fuji (Younger Fuji Volcano). A summit crater is 500 m across and 250 m deep.

    More than 200,000 people climb to the top of the mountain every year. There was an increase in seismic activity under Mt Fuji in 2000-01. A new eruption of Mount Fuji may be explosive like the 1707 eruption. A 2004 Japanese government simulation determined that in the worst-case scenario, a major eruption of Fuji would cause ¥2.5 trillion in economic damage.

    Mt Fuji is privately owned above the eighth station. Fujisan Hongu Sengentaisha, a Shizuoka-based Shinto shrine, was granted the land in 1609.

    The Philippine Tectonic Plate, the Eurasian Plate (or the Amurian Plate), and the North American (or Okhotsk Plate) meet at Mount Fuji.

    2011 Earthquake (mag 6.2)
    A large, shallow earthquake (mag 6.2) occurred under the SSW flank of Mt Fuji on 15th March 2011.





    I haven't heard about any further activity...i will try to find out though

    I can't find anything about this in the news anywhere - are you sure the video is authentic?

    It came from Dutchsinse's channel on youtube. it looks like the same webcams that showed the volcano erupting around the time of the eq. Will try to find that footage
