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.
Family-friendly places like Kagoshima City Aquarium and Dolphin Park will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Kagoshima: Kirishima (Kirishima Shrine, Kareigawa Station, & more), Minamikyushu (Chiran Peace Museum & Chiran Samurai Residence Garden) and Ibusuki (Mt. Kaimondake, JR Southernmost Nishioyama Station, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the geological forces at Sakurajima, go for a walk through Sengan-en, appreciate the history behind Saigo Takamori Statue, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Shiroyama.

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 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
