most people think that mount fuji errupted because there was an 8.9 earthquake about 2 months before the explotion so that may hav triggered it. now we had another earthquake in japan and sparks are coming out :0
There were several eruptions that were documented. Though the most famous and destructive was in 1883, when it blew itself to pieces. Worth noting is that there is currently a new volcano forming inside/ontop of it, called Anak Krakatau (" Child of Krakatoa "), which is currently very active, growin…g at a rate of about 5 inches per week.

12 millioseconds! 8). THIS CANNOT BE RIGHT BECAUSE THE ERUPTION KILLED 17MILLION PEOPLE! AN ERUPTION THAT SHORT WOULD PROBABLY KILL NO ONE!! GEEZ! GET SMART!! . -M****B**
At least 16 times since 781 AD. most of them were moderate. 2 of them were large eruptions. Most recent eruption is between 1707-1708
The notorious last eruption of Mt. Fuji began with a huge earthquake on November 11, 1707. For miles around the epicenter, Japanese people felt the effects of this earthquake, particularly in the city of Osaka. People knew that Mt. Fuji could be expected to blow at any time, but the explosion was no… less than historic. The Great Hoei Eruption, as it is now known, occurred between mid-December and early January of 1707-1708, causing earthquake-like tremors for miles around and strewing huge amounts of ash and cinder. On the fateful day of December 16, 1707, Mt. Fuji began belching up ash and cinder. The explosions continued for a period of more than two weeks, spitting up hundreds of millions of cubic feet of volcanic ash, which was spread for miles and miles to the east of the mountain. To put the range of the explosion into context, ash even fell in the city of Tokyo nearly 90 miles away! This eruption is still remembered today for its notoriety, which created three new vent holes in the volcanic mountain. Mt. Fuji's History and Eruptions To this day, Mt. Fuji has a giant crater on its one flank, caused during the huge eruption in late 1707. However, asking when Mt. Fuji last erupted only answers the most recent one of the many huge events caused during the history of the mountain. Fuji has been an active volcano for thousands of years, and written history has recorded many of the eruptions that occurred on Mt. Fuji over time. Creation of Mt. Fuji Volcanic mountains usually do not start out as mountains-rather, continuous eruptions over time cause them to grow bigger and bigger as the magma and lava cool into solid rock. In an earlier era, the mountain (known to the inhabitants of Japan as Old Fuji) erupted over thousands of years, finally forming into a cone over half of a mile high. Once the volcano had spent a few thousand active years growing and growing, it stopped, and for a period of about 4000 years, it apparently sat dormant. About 5000 years ago, the mountain entered its current era of renewed activity, and the era of "New Fuji" began. Four explosions occurred over the subsequent period until written history tells us of an event about 2300 years ago, causing liquid mud to be spilled in the nearby city of Gotemba. In the year 864, a well-documented explosion occurred which rocked Japan for a period of ten days, during which dozens of people were killed and their homes obliterated. Future Expectations for Mt. Fuji Eruptions Perhaps unfortunately, scientists believe that Mt. Fuji is about due for another seismic event. A government report done a few years ago determined that if Fuji were to erupt, it could cost tens of billions of dollars in damage, causing it to be one of the most closely monitored volcanoes in the whole world. A series of tremors and earthquakes recently have pointed to an upwelling of magma deep within the structure of the volcano, hinting that the majestic Mt. Fuji may be reaching the zero-hour for another colossal explosion. A major earthquake in the 1850s was the last large event observed around Mt. Fuji, and scientists expect that a new event could occur very soon. Although citizens living around Mt. Fuji do not believe that the volcano will become active again anytime soon, it is far from dormant, and another eruption may be just around the corner.. Author: Christy Rakoczy (MORE)
The first recorded eruption of Mt Fuji was in 781 CE. Earlier eruptions must have occurred to build up the cone, but there is no record.
There is Mt. Fuji in Japan (last eruption in 1707) Many people died, but because of starvation. There was absolutely no lava, and everything was just because of the air, steam, that came out. There were even many many houses and monuments that were destroyed. The eruption ended on Feb, 24, 1708.
We know that Mount Etna has erupted over 200 times historically,but we aren't sure of the exact number since the history goes backa long time. The first written record we have is from 425 BC. Wehave a lot better record of eruptions since 1950: 1950: summit 1950-51: flank 1955: summit 1956: summit 1…956: flank 1957: summit 1960: summit 1961: summit 1964: flank 1964: summit 1966: summit 1966-1971: summit 1968: flank 1971: flank 1972-1973: summit 1974: flank 1974-1975: summit 1975-1977: flank 1977-1978: summit 1978: flank 1979: summit 1979: flank 1980: summit 1981: summit 1981: flank 1982-1983: summit 1983: flank 1984: summit 1985: summit 1985: flank 1986: summit 1986-1987: flank 1987: summit 1988: summit 1989: summit 1989: flank 1990: summit 1991-1993: flank 1995: summit 1996: summit 1997: summit 1998: summit 1999: summit 2000: summit 2001: summit 2001: flank 2002: summit 2002-2003: flank 2004-2005: flank 2006: summit 2007: summit 2008-2009: flank 2010: summit 2011-2013: summit 2014-ongoing: flank (This latest eruptive phase is still ongoing as of February 2016.)

There are 95 Confirmed and dated eruptions during Holocene times for Kilauea. The most recent being the current eruption that began in January of 1983, all the way back to the first dated eruption layer at approximately 4650 BCE. The eruption list which is available through the Smithsonian Institute… of Global Volcanism. The eruption list is compiled of historical accounts as well as tephrachronology and radiocarbon dating.

I believe 38 times including the 1980 eruption, but 45 or more counting all the little eruptions that have occured since.
It is not possible to predict volcanic activity utilizing current Earth technology. Check back later...
Mount Fuji has erupted many times but the last time it erupted was in 1707-08. And some extra information is that Mount Fuji is a dormant volcano and has erupted 16-17 times.
Lava spilled out violently and smoke was released. Like any other volcano eruptions, land is made fertile while property and lives may have perished.
63 times.. It has actually erupted 16 times since 781 AD, which was when Mount Fuji was created.
The extremely explosive eruption caused mudflows and mudslides destroyed trees, habitats, wildlife, and forests and left only barren wasteland in its wake.
The last eruption began in November 1707 and the volcano has been dormant since February 1708..
It's difficult to predict eruptions as records are not aways kept, or accurate. Mount Pinatubo is believed to have first erupted 17,000 years ago with successive eruptions throughout the years. Major eruptions have been identified at 9,000, 6,000, 5,000, 3,900, 2,300 and 450 years ago. Ther…e may have been many more minor eruptions. The last major eruption was in 1990/1991.

Mount Fuji probaly can still erupt. It is dormat now, but scientists consider it active. It is not considered extinct and won't be if it sleeps for another 100s of years.
The Pacific plate and the Asian plate crushing into each other forming A fault and weakness which allowed the Magma to rise up...through a millenia the Fuji Volcano has erupted many times as a reaction from these friction of plates
That is not known. Between 1883 and 1927 all eruptions of Krakatoa occurred underwater, making them difficult to observe.
(I think you mean the 1707 eruption) Mount. Fuji erupted. It didn't spew any lava but did destroy 2 million homes from a series of earthquakes. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
Mount Teide is considered to be an active volcano. The last timeMount Teide erupted was in 1909 and is the tallest active volcanoin Spain. The volcano erupted many times in the past and remains athreat to the Canary Islands.
it depends if you are in a place such as Hawaii or Bahamas or something like that, but they don't erupt if your in a place out of valcanoe range so there you have it :D :)>
Mt. Fuji's last recorded eruption took place in late 1707. Recent tremors have given rise to speculation that it might again erupt in the near future.
pyroclastic flow, but now the volcano is dormant. There is said that when it erupted in 258 B.C. that it was so intense that Tokyo (which is 60 miles away from the volcano) got covered in 6 inches of ash.
In the last eruption of 1707/8 there were no recorded fatalities so the whole population of the planet survived.
The last time it erupted was in 1923 and you can still see the damage from that in Shasta. Not sure of the total number of eruptions.
Mount Erebus has been observed by scientists to be continuously active since 1972. Early explorers observed it being continuously active between 1899 and 1922, the age of heroic polar exploration. You can read more about its persistent eruption patterns, below. Yes.
it made the land, dirdyier, and dry, and very popular, but the land is still a beautiful place to see, be in, and live in.
It has been approximately 300 years since the last time Mount Fuji erupted . -Sophie.(:
They get a siren and then the Japanese people evacuate their houses or anywhere where they are and they hide near the volcano. Some people die then because they didn't listen to the siren or they live by themselves!
The massive eruption of 79 AD is the only one of which we have a description. There were a number of important prehistoric eruptions, and there seem to have been some minor historic eruptions in which people witnessed fire spouting from the area near the summit of the mountain, but we do not have go…od details.

Little to no damage because Mt. Fuji's first eruption is estimated long before civilization in Japan.
Fuji has erupted at least 16 times since 781 AD. Most of these eruptions were moderate to moderate-large in size. The most recent eruption was in 1707-1708 from a vent on the southeast side of the cone. The eruption ejected 0.8 cubic km of ash, blocks, and bombs. Five historic eruptions have caused …damage, including the 1707-1708 eruption, but no fatalities. Fuji had two large eruptions. (MORE)
Since some eruptions have not been observed by mankind, there is nonumber available. It is clear, however, that it has constantlyerupted since people have been there to observe it -- from 1899onwards, with a few gaps when no people were in the vicinity.
I think it has erupted 5 times. 1885 was when it started, 1905, 1996, 2010, 2011
The last time Mt Fuji erupted was in 1707 A.D. It was one of the most powerful eruptions. It began in mid December and continued for weeks together. It lasted till January and etimates showed that over 700 million cubic ft of ash were spread a hundred kilometers away. Paces that were affected includ…ed were Sagami and Izu. Many volcanic vents were formed as a result of the blast. Hope this helps. (MORE)
În the last 300 years there has been no eruption.The last one was in 1707.
It is not currently an active volcano, Mt Fuji's last eruption was some 300 years ago.
A lot! So many times that I can't even count it. It is ongoing. It's full name, Volcan de Fuego means volcano of fire. This name fits because it is very active and explosive. It has had more than 60 historic eruptions. It is located in Guatemala. This country is on North America. I sure hope this he…lps you understand Fuego because it really is an exciting and interesting volcano. (MORE)
They have practise evacuation drills and can have certain areas where no one is allowed to live or build on as it is where the lava flow is predicted to be.
The HÅei Eruption of Mount Fuji started on December 16, 1707 andended about January 1, 1708 during the Edo period
Mount Fuji is the archetype of the stratovolcano and probablyrivals Vesuvius for the best-know volcano. The volcano rises about3,500 m above the surrounding plain. Fuji has erupted at least 16times since 781 AD. Most of these eruptions were moderate tomoderate-large in size.
The last major eruption of Mount Fuji, the HÅei Eruption, occurred between 16 th December 1707 to 1 st January 1708.
Mt Fuji was pyroclastic flow in 1707-1708[ its last eruption ] their for it was a violent eruption.
Mount Fuji hasn't erupted in about 300 years. Records from that time won't say much about relief efforts and there was probably no foreign help.
The last eruption of Mt. Fuji was in 1707-1708. The eruption released cinder, ash, "bombs", and mud but strangely no lava. The eruption destroyed 72 homes and 2 temples but there were oddly no fatalities due to the eruption.
Vesuvius does not erupt every year. It has sporadic activity. Itwill erupt and then go quite for a few decades or a few centuries.Its last eruption was in 1944.
In the past 100 years Mount Pinatubo has had many eruptions.However, all of those were part of a relatively brief period ofactivity in 1991 leading up to and immediately following thecataclysmic eruption on June 15.
There is no set time for an eruption of a volcano. It all dependson the pressure building up beneath.
