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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kagoshima: Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden), Kirishima (Kirishima Shrine & Kirishima Distillery) and Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, & more). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Sengan-en, learn more about the world around you at Sakurajima Visitor Center, appreciate the history behind Saigo Takamori Statue, and take in panoramic vistas at Shiroyama Observatory.

To see where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the Kagoshima trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Kagoshima Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Kagoshima can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
