The Coordinating Committee for Prediction of Volcanic Eruptions will put seven Japanese volcanoes under round-the-clock surveillance because they are likely to become active or erupt in the next 100 years, sources said Saturday.

The seven volcanoes include Mount Shirane, which is situated between Gunma and Tochigi prefectures, and Mount Norikura, which is between Nagano and Gifu, the sources said.
