Or is it really only a collapse that can lead to an eruption of the caldera?

Central Japan’s Mount Ontake erupts; hikers reported injured
Mount Ontake, a volcano straddling Nagano and Gifu prefectures, erupted around 11:53 a.m. Saturday, leaving several hikers injured and stranded in mountain trails, local police and rescue workers said.
There was also unconfirmed information that some hikers were buried in volcanic ash, Nagano police said.
The Meteorological Agency said smoke billowing down the south face of the 3,067-meter volcano and stretching over 3 km was observed through a land ministry camera. The Nagano fire department has received several reports of injuries to hikers.
The agency is forecasting further eruptions that may affect nearby residents and is warning of volcanic cinder falling within a 4-km radius of the crater.
In Tokyo, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe set up an emergency task force and instructed relevant public authorities to get a handle on the situation and speed up the rescue operation of stranded hikers.
