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: Kirishima (Kirishima Distillery & Kirishima Shrine), Onsen Resorts (in Ibusuki) and Chiran Peace Museum (in Minamikyushu). Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Sengan-en, pause for some photo ops at Saigo Takamori Statue, get impressive views of Sakurajima, and get engrossed in the history at Museum of the Meiji Restoration.
