Kagoshima

3.7

Naples of the East

Kagoshima sits across the bay from Sakurajima, an active volcano that serves as a symbol of the city and works its way into many aspects of life here. The regular eruptions of the volcano coat the city with ash, which looks rather striking once it is at rest but can be dangerous for air traffic. The old castle town possesses many interesting historical sites dating back to the time of the Meiji Restoration, with gardens, temples, and the main castle highlighting most holidays in Kagoshima. Kagoshima is in Kagoshima Prefecture. Make the most of your holiday in Kagoshima by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Japan route planning site .
