Almost due north

To the northeast

How many years ago, approximately, did the Pacific Plate change direction?

Assuming that the current direction of plate movement continues, what will be the eventual fate of the Meiji seamount?

It will be subducted beneath the Eurasian plate

Once it hits the Eurasian plate it will provide enough resistance to cause the plate to change direction again.

It will remain in the same area it is today.

The volcano that originally formed the seamount will re-activate and a new island will be formed.
