Eruptions from an underwater volcano have created a new island.
Magma began spewing off the coast of Japan last summer, the first eruptions in the region since 1986.
A new island emerged off Iwoto, formerly known as Iwo Jima.
It was the site of a major battle in World War II.
New islands have already been confirmed in the area, but all of them are sinking within a few months due to harsh sea conditions.
This new island is the first in the region since 1986.
Officials warned of smoke and large ash deposits as the eruptions continued.
