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.
Get out of town with these interesting Kagoshima side-trips: Kirishima (Kirishima Shrine & Kirishima Distillery), Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, & more) and Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Sengan-en, contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima, get engrossed in the history at Museum of the Meiji Restoration, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Terukuni Shrine.

Plan trip to Kagoshima with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
