Tamu Massif encompasses an area covering 120,000 square miles in the sea off the coast of Japan.

So is it still spewing magma? I can't tell from the text.

well, i doubt that many people were already on this volcano, seeing as it's over a mile under water. still pretty amazing, though.

mars still has us beat, though when it comes to giant volcanoes.
