  Title: Southern Kyushu, Japan
  Description:
  This dramatic infrared view of Southern Kyushu, Japan (31.5N, 130.5E) shows  
  the vegetation on the island as a red or pink, depending upon its lushness. 
  The small islands of Yaku Jima and Tanega Shima are almost totally cloud 
  covered.  The port city of Kagoshima with its active volcano, Sakura Jimai 
  in the middle of the harbor, is at the extreme southern tip of Kyushu. 
  This  volcano has erupted almost continuously for over 1,200 years.
