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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Minamikyushu (Chiran Samurai Residence Garden & Chiran Peace Museum), Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, & more) and Kirishima (Kareigawa Station, Kirishima Shrine Viewing Point, & more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Sengan-en, get impressive views of Sakurajima, browse the different shops at AMU PLAZA KAGOSHIMA, and pause for some photo ops at Saigo Takamori Statue.
