A new island has been formed off the coast of Japan following a recent earthquake.
The island is very small – about 200 metres wide – and it might not last very long because it’s made out of volcanic rock that erodes quite easily.
It was created by a volcanic eruption under the sea bed which forced lava and rock to burst through the surface of the water.
The molten rock has then cooled and hardened on the water, turning it into a mini island.
The new island was spotted due to the massive clouds of smoke blowing out into the air.
