TOKYO (Sputnik) Experts observed an increase in volcanic earthquakes in the Kirishima mountain range on Kyushu island, urging tourists and hikers to avoid the 0.6-mile area around Mt. Io’s crater.

The agency said at least 37 volcanic tremors have been recorded at the site by mid-Sunday.

Intensified activity around the 4,300-foot volcano dates back to July 2015.
