Rock and ash was thrown 1,800m (6,000ft) into the air and experts say a lava dome is growing inside its crater. 
The eruption was on the southern Kyushu island, 1,500km (950 miles) from the epicentre of the quake.
It last erupted two weeks ago but experts do not know if it is linked to geological destabilisation caused by the earthquake.
