Cleo is right. There are many situations where search dogs cannot be used. I think the sulphur stench and ash would make it very difficult, plus getting them up there would be hard. There are teams across the country ready for disasters, such as Hiroshima last month. What surprised me was that apart from police dogs, search and rescue dog teams work on a completely voluntary basis....no food, shelter, gasoline.etc is provided for these brave people and their dogs.

This ferry previously belonged to the A-line based in Amami. Strangely their other similar car ferry, the Ariake tipped over unexpectedly and sank in a similar fashion in Jaqpanese waters in 2009. Luckily all survived, but I suspect there is a problem with these big ferries somehow...

This ferry was previously one of the A-line fleet that is based in Amami Oshima. Strangely enough one of their similar type ferries over-turned a few years back..no-one died but the accident was blamed on poor loading and waves hitting it side on. Maybe a design issue?
