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.
Attractions like Kagoshima City Aquarium and Takachiho Ranch make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Kagoshima's surroundings by going to Kirishima (Kirishima Distillery & Kirishima Shrine), Chiran Peace Museum (in Minamikyushu) and Ibusuki (JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, Onsen Resorts, & more). There's lots more to do: get impressive views of Sakurajima, take in the pleasant sights at Sengan-en, explore the world behind art at Nagashima Museum, and enjoy breathtaking views from Shiroyama Observatory.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Kagoshima trip site .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Kagoshima Airport. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
